PSN’s Mike Farrell is reporting that Pitt running back Vincent Davis has entered the Transfer Portal.
The 5-foot-8, 180-pound back from Cardinal Gibbons in Fort Lauderdale, Florida isn’t the biggest player, but in terms of heart and effort, Davis was amongst the biggest on the Pitt roster. Because of this and his ‘We Not Me’ attitude, Davis is a beloved player by the coaching staff and his teammates.
During his time at Pitt, Davis rushed for 1,813 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns, to go along with 64 receptions for 413 yards and a touchdown.
This past season, Davis received 52 carries and rushed for 274 yards and a touchdown, obviously not receiving a ton of work due to the workload that Izzy Abanikanda and Rodney Hammond received. His best season as a Panther came in 2020 when he started nine games and rushed 143 times for 632 yards and six touchdowns.
With the addition of Derrick Davis, along with the return of Rodney Hammond and possibly C’Bo Flemister, Davis wouldn’t have had much of an opportunity for an impact in 2023.
Davis joined Pitt as a 3-star recruit in their Class of 2019 selecting the Panthers over other Power Five opportunities with Boston College, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Wake Forest.
Davis will have one season of athletic eligibility remaining.
