Former Pitt DE John Morgan Receiving Big Interest Since Entering Transfer Portal

Published

on

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that John Morgan has received a bunch of interest since being a free agent.

The former Pitt defensive end who entered the NCAA transfer portal today has not only received interest, but he’s also already received a number of offers.

A source tells PSN the following schools have extended an offer to Morgan since he officially entered the portal: Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Indiana, Colorado, Appalachian State, Memphis, Buffalo and Akron.

In terms of a timeline, Morgan plans on enrolling at his new home in January, so he and his family will sit down in the near future to start discussing which schools might be a good fit, while also being patient to allow more programs to offer.

Since he’s already earned two degrees from Pitt, Morgan doesn’t feel the need to spend an entire weekend while visiting and considering a school. It’s going to be more about making a visit, talking with the coaches and learning about their system and how they plan on using him. The bells and whistles that go with an official visit weekend isn’t going to be needed for Morgan.

Morgan ended his Pitt career with 76 career tackles, 14.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. His best statistical season came in the 2021 ACC-title winning season, as he registered 26 tackles and 5.5 sacks.

Still not sure why he’s leaving. Did they want him to leave?? did they not ask him to stay. He knows the system. Would definitely start. IDK

Whoever has the most $… Has to be about his “trap brand.” What football opportunity would be better? Pitt has either led or finished first in the nation in sack’s over the past few years. So if he doesn’t want to play in a defense structured for him to get after the quarterback, what else could it be…

At the same time, 5 years is a long time. Gave Pitt his best over that period of time. I’m not mad at him.

Good result for Pitt. Why? He has two degrees. Neither of which is PE. Pitt exceeded their commitment to John and his parents. John, get on with your life. Good luck.
