Former RB Commit Jordaan Bailey Not Coming to Pitt

Published

on

The Pitt Panthers running back depth chart will be minus one player when they report to camp in August.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed that Florida 3-star running back Jordaan Bailey, a member of Pitt’s Class of 2022, won’t be joining the Pitt football program.

Issues surrounded Bailey originally joining Pitt last year. After originally committing to Pitt, Bailey de-committed before eventually signing his Letter of Intent in December. The reason for the original de-commitment was due to academic issues and those same issues will prevent him from enrolling at Pitt.

While the loss of Bailey won’t impact Pitt this season due to a stacked backfield of Israel Abanikanda, Rodney Hammond, Vincent Davis and Daniel Carter, Pitt will likely try and sign two running backs to their Class of 2023.

Bailey was a player Pitt was excited about because of his speed and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

Hopefully he gets a shot at Milford Academy NY or Valley Forge near Philadelphia. PITT has some great players attend those Prep Schools for a Year to get aligned academically.

All you have to do at Hillsborough is show up. I guess his mom made it difficult by misspelling Jordan…

How many FBS schools would deny an athlete based on academics?

All of them if he can’t get through the Clearinghouse.

Even Alabama? They “graduated” players who couldn’t read.
