Pitt Extends Offer to North Carolina A&T Transfer RB Bhayshul Tuten

Published

on

Despite having commitments from two high school running backs, it appears Pitt is still looking to add to 2023 running back room.

Monday evening, Pitt extended an offer to North Carolina A&T transfer Bhayshul Tuten, who entered the transfer portal on December 14.

Tuten had an impressive 2022 season, rushing for 1,363 yards, 572 receiving yards, scoring 17 total touchdowns, all while averaging 6.5 yards per carry. Those numbers made him a finalist for the 2022 Walter Payton Award. Tuten broke the school and conference records for consecutive 100-yard games in a season (10).

Since announcing his decision to transfer, Tuten has also received offers from Boston College, Virginia Tech, Georgia, Florida, Missouri and Kansas State.

 

The native of Paulsboro, New Jersey will have two seasons of athletic eligibility remaining.

Pitt found out on Monday that All-American running back Izzy Abanikanda is entering his name into the 2023 NFL Draft, but haven’t received word yet on the futures of Vincent Davis and C’Bo Flemister, who both have the option to return. Adding a talent like Tuten to pair with Rodney Hammond would give the Panthers a formidable running back duo once again.

I wonder if he is related to Henry Tuten ? A really good receiver at Pitt back in the 80’s

1,363 yards, 572 receiving yards, scoring 17 total touchdowns, all while averaging 6.5 yards per carry…against I-AA competition.

Come on Pat. We can do better than this.

With offers from Georgia, Florida, K State and Missouri you may not have to worry about him transferring here.

Those are great numbers. Have you seen him play? Watched film? I am confused. Walter Payton played at Jackson St. Would he be terrible, too?
