Former Farrell, Pitt TE Kyi Wright Enters Transfer Portal



Kyi Wright entered his redshirt junior season as an option on the two-deep depth chart, but he ended up being little-used offensively in Frank Cignetti Jr.’s offense.

Wright, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound tight end from Farrell High in Farrell, Pennsylvania, entered the transfer portal Saturday afternoon, PSN‘s Mike Farrell reported.

Wright committed to Pitt as a three-star athlete out of Farrell in 2019, following a successful senior season in which he quarterbacked the Steelers to a 15-0 season capped by a PIAA Class-1A title.

After redshirting as a freshman in 2019, Wright played sparingly in 2020 before his 2021 season was cut short by a season-ending injury after just five games. He returned to the field in 2022, hauling in just one reception for three yards.

He finishes his Pitt career with four receptions for 37 yards.

It wasn’t the 2022 season that Wright envisioned as he played just 29 offensive snaps.

Pitt has a one-two duo at tight end that features Gavin Bartholomew and Karter Johnson, and a plethora of young, inexperienced options. It’s very likely that Pitt will add an experienced, veteran tight end in the portal before next season.
