Former Pitt QB Kedon Slovis Details Transfer Portal Process, Schools With Mutual Interest

Published

on

Former Pitt quarterback Kedon Slovis is preparing for his next college stop and is already hearing from some top programs out west.

Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke with Slovis, who updated us on which teams have been showing initial interest and some visits he’s already taken and plans to take in the future.

“So far, coaches from UCLA and BYU have come out to meet face to face,” said Slovis. “Also, I’ve been talking to Oregon State and plan on meeting with them either before or after their bowl game when I get back home (to Arizona). Those are the ones I’ve been in contact with the most and that I’ve had a mutual interest in so far.”

Slovis, who entered the transfer portal last Monday after spending a season at Pitt, after previously transferring from USC, is letting bowl season play out, allowing his prospective interests to finish their seasons before making any decisions.

“In terms of visits, I went out to Provo, Utah on Friday and have talked tentatively about visiting UCLA, but haven’t scheduled anything yet,” Slovis said. “With bowl games — Oregon State is in Las Vegas all week practicing so I don’t have time to visit. I’m more so going just to get a feel for offensive schemes and personnel; the campus and school are obviously not as big of a deal as a transfer.”

Slovis threw for 2,397 yards with 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions as Pitt’s starting quarterback in 2022, but he wasn’t able to find that seamless fit in the offense.

He’s thrown for 9,973 yards and 68 touchdowns, at a 65.9% clip, over four seasons at USC and Pitt.

I didn’t think you could use portal more than once.

I think it can be used again as a grad transfer.

This is when I root for a player (as long as he is not playing for PITT). I hope he fines a home and good fit.

Why not Portal after the bowl game?? Don’t understand that

because teams would fill their QB needs and he’d be left without a home

Dear PSN,
Please run the following survey:
What would Pitt’s record have been in 2021 if Cignetti had been our OC?
I think 7-5 at best. I wonder what other readers think.

So, he would have had a worse record than this year with better talent. Sure, that makes sense.

Mike, I’m curious-how did the other two QB’s that PITT was considering last year do for their teams?

(1.) Chubba Purdy went to Nebraska and did not look very good in relief of Casey Thompson with Mark Whipple as OC.
(2.) Zach Calzada went to Auburn and sit on the bench and is in the transfer portal again this year.
