Pitt Defensive Back Khalil Anderson Enters The Transfer Portal

Published

on

Pitt has lost defensive back Khalil Anderson to the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The redshirt freshman from Riverwood High School in Atlanta, Georgia announced that he’s leaving the program and looking for another place to call home.

“Let me begin by thanking God for ordering my steps in the ongoing way he does. Thank you to the coaches, staff, trainers, academic advisers and teammates at the University of Pittsburgh for the advice each of you provided me those past two seasons. Thank you to Coach Narduzzi and Coach Collins for giving me the opportunity to fulfill one of my dreams of becoming a NCAA student athlete. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to enter my name in the transfer portal on December 5 with 3 years of eligibility remaining. I wish the best to the Pitt family and I’m excited by the prospect of continuing my life’s journey at a new destination.”

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound defensive back was a big get for Pitt a couple of years ago as he signed with Pitt over other offers from Power Five programs such as Arkansas, Duke, Kansas State, Miami, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Penn State, South Carolina, Syracuse and Wake Forest.

Anderson was a member of a talented, veteran defensive backfield and didn’t see any meaningful playing time in his first two seasons at Pitt.

Anderson becomes the third offseason transfer joining wide receiver Jaylon Barden and defensive back Judson Tallandier.

He’s hardly played a snap. How do you know if he was any good or not?

He was a high prospect with good camp reviews. I think he had a higher probability to be good than most

Pollack and Anderson were borderline 4-Star recruits. Pitt has mostly average 3-Star recruits so, yes, these two hurt in particular. A big downside to the Covid extension. Thus far, more starters are not leaving the program freeing-up room for the younger talent. There will be a big young talent gap to fill until this temporary policy runs its course over the next couple of years.

Just looked at the 2023 schedule. No one but no one schedules THREE non conference FBS opponents to start a season. Going into conference, we could be 1 – 3. Damn you Scott Barnes.

With Javon McIntyre’s rise, Khalil probably saw the writing on the wall. Nick Patti is probably a good reference, could have, should have been a starter.
