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.
