If someone wants to get back at Pitt fans in an argument, the common response — especially from Penn State fans — is to bring up Pitt’s game-day attendance.
Pitt defensive end John Morgan III, who’s emerged as one of the emotional leaders on the team ahead of the 2022 season, has come up with his own way of clapping back at stadium attendance. Morgan has partnered with Th3 NIL Shop to sell his “107 Diamonds vs. 107K” shirts.

Morgan, who’s partnered with Th3 NIL Shop and Bonfire to release his Trap Walker apparel, has been very vocal on Twitter in both responding to opposing fanbases and rallying support around Pitt football in the wake of Jordan Addison’s exit for USC.
As a key component of Pitt’s defensive line, one of the big four with Habakkuk Baldonado, Deslin Alexandre and Dayon Hayes, Morgan — this spring especially — has emerged as the definition of a Pitt man. And after a very strong spring, showing out in the 2022 Blue-Gold Spring Game, Morgan’s senior season is gearing up to be his best yet.
Morgan played in all 14 games last season as a redshirt junior, starting three, and he recorded 27 tackles (19 solo), 6.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, a forced fumble and recovery and a pass defense. In a start against Michigan State in the Peach Bowl, Morgan forced a fumble that was scooped and scored by Cam Bright.
