Pitt FB Recruiting

Kent State Transfer WR Dante Cephas Commits to Penn State

Published

on

Pitt’s pursuit of Kent State wide receiver Dante Cephas ended with the former WPIAL star landing at Penn State.

PSU’s receiving corps got stronger Sunday when former Kent State WR Dante Cephas came over from the transfer portal.

Cephas (6-foot-1, 186 pounds) had his best year in 2021 when he caught 82 passes for 1,240 yards and nine touchdowns. This past season he caught 48 catches for 744 yards for the Golden Flashes.

Cephas will bring a veteran presence to a group that returns KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Trey Wallace, Liam Clifford and incoming freshman Carmelo Taylor. Penn State was looking for a receiver that is a proven commotiy that can help with the transition from Sean Clifford to Drew Allar, and the flip of Devin Carter from Penn State to West Virginia amplified the need.

Another thing Dante Cephas brings to the table is that he’s an in-state product. He went to Penn High School, was in the same recruiting class Daequan Hardy went to school with current Penn State running back Tank Smith.

Penn State has its third player from the transfer portal with Riley Thomson, a punter from Florida International, and Storm Duck, a cornerback from Nort0h Carolina.

The news of Cephas committing came about a half hour after news got out of Taylor Stubblefield being fired as Penn State’s receivers coach. Stubblefield had been in the role for three seasons.

In his statement, Stubblefield wrote that it had been a “privilege to work alongside some of the great minds in all of college football.”

”Lastly, to the community who supported who has supported my wife and son through her father’s recent illness and passing on Friday, there is no way we can adequately thank you,” he wrote. “This community has exceeded every expectation.”

Jane you try to talk football like Tarzan (see what I did there) and extoll pitt successes, but you always show your lack of knowledge and come back to Jane. Do you want a golf clap for a conference championship and 2 players who had no shot at Heisman? You let Addison walk for 3 million, JV move from JV program. They better figure out NIL or will be left behind. I’ll let you look up Cephas stats to see what he’s done.

The decision made by Cephas to attend Penn State is a big miss for Pitt. It comes on the heels of so much good news in regards to local kids coming home. If a Penn Hills kid in Cephas joined the others it would have been the perfect end to the portal season. Your statement in regards to Pitt’s inability to develop a passing game might be true, but I will hold judgement until after Cignetti has the opportunity to install his offense with his players. However, let’s not exaggerate Pitts demise. To state that Pitt can not develop a… Read more »

Plan “A” is always better than a Plan “B”. Huge swing and Miss by Pitt.

Cignetti is a huge disappointment. If you need multiple seasons to “install” an offense in college, then you are running the wrong offense. All anyone is doing by saying he “needs more time” is getting him to his next contract.

Obviously Plan A is better than Plan B. I can not agree with the statement that Cignetti is a huge disappointment based off of one season. Again, he has been the OC for one season and not multiple seasons. Remember he accepted the job after Narduzzi made the push to bring Slovis in to replace Pickett. We now have a Narduzzi approved and encouraged offense with Cignetti. We are beginning to see the type of players needed to run this offense being recruited. You might be correct in your hope that Cignetti is a disappointment but I feel confident that… Read more »

Not signing a kid that was a 2 star out of school, is undersized and is transferring from a MAC school is a miss? They didn’t exactly miss out on Jerry Rice here. Look, you have to be judicious with NIL money, this kid was not worth what he was asking. State Penn went that far to sign him because they really don’t produce WR’s, have a new OB coming in and may have finally figured out that being roadkill for OSU and UM won’t change with the three yrds and a cloud of dust offense.

Obviously only time will tell if the loss of Cephas to Penn State is a big deal. The biggest loss is Wayne. I suspect his loss on the field will be filled with the players currently on the roster, the incoming freshman, and a transfer waiting to see what Cephas was going to do. What I find as the biggest loss is the optics. In this most recent portal cycle is a group of former WPIAL players that left the area and Pitt for bigger names only to return to Pittsburgh and Pitt led by Phil Jurkovec and the others.… Read more »

i agree with you regarding Wayne, but programs like Pitt have contingency plans in place for things like this.

Believe it or not, Pitt is probably in better position to deal with this than most P5 teams. Duzz’s recruiting classes always get criticized because he gets a lot of 3 star ids, but you’re missing the point; he gets a lot of 3 stars from football hotbeds like FLA, These kids are 4-5 star in most other areas of the country, and can adapt to play multiple positions.

Trust me they’re fine.

I get what you’re saying,but the WPIAL isn’t the fertile recruiting ground that iit once was. When they do have 4 and 5 star kids, you get pretty much at least 10-15 P5 teams competing for those players. My wife’s niece graduated with Dorin Dickerson, for example. They were good friends and he told her alot about the recruiting process, and trust me alot of these programs van be flat out dirty, including State Penn. In Dorin’s case, his parents were invilved in the process and felt Pitt was his best option and he went there. Jurkovec, on the other… Read more »

I understand what you are saying a agree with you. Integrity, honesty and roll up your sleeves and work hard are concepts not present in much of college football. This is why I respect Pat Narduzzi, his staff and the program he created … they exemplify those traits that I value. This is why as a Pitt graduate that has followed Pitt football since the early 1970’s I am proud. In my opinion, this is why you see so many three star recruits come to Pitt and succeed. They have a determination, work ethic and raw ability that Pat and… Read more »

Seriously, Pat told me not to give such a long dissertation since it might out me as his significant other.

My point is that Narduzzi might not be producing a top five caliber program but does produce one that we can be proud of. He is able to do this with mostly three star recruits that most “big name” programs overlook speaks to something special.

Now is the point I question if this is an intelligent conversation or if you are just uneducated, to biased to see the truth or just not worth the time in responding.

If you look at trends he has one of the top programs win wise during the past two years with an average of 10. His team is positioned to be very successful next season as well.

MAC and ACC are about the same. That’s why Cephas transferred to the BigTen. Why make a lateral move when you can upgrade. Same is true for Davis and McMillon. They showed they can’t get on the field at SEC (which is same level as BigTen) so they drop down to ACC where they know they will see the field.

What sport are you watching Slovis did not perform well in the offense because he doesn’t fir the offense, he’s a spread QB instead of pro set, which Pitt runs. That’s why Jurkovec and the former PSU kid transferred here’ Cignetti will develop them into NFL ready QB’s. All that happens at State Penn is that the QB becomes dept at three yards and a cloud of dust, Kinda why you don’t see… Read more »

He will catch passes from the best QB in the BigTen next year. Welcome home Dante, but there was never really a doubt.
I would also be careful throwing around the blocking comments. pitt has no TE or WR on the roster that can play so Hammond will be worn out next year.

When you have a RN like Izzy you;re supposed to ignore that and play sandlot football? Football hasn’t changed since the game was created. You control the line of scrimmage on both side of the ball, and you keep your defense off the field as much as possible because that keeps your opponents offense off the field and enables your defense to do more. Your OL controls the line of scrimmage and you run the ball well, that opens up the passing game. This is what happened when Pickett ran the offense (not surprisingly saw the same thing with him… Read more »

Many of the “experts” on this thread obviously don’t follow Pitt football recruiting. With the transfers and the high school receiver recruits we just signed, our receiver depth has dramatically improved. In addition, the quarterback room is much improved as well. Dante Cephas is not the second coming of anything. He had one decent season in the MAC.

I’ve been trying to explain Pitt’s recruiting philosophy on here.don’t know who is paying attention. Before coming to Pitt, Duzz was the defensive coordinator for MSU, that team that is at the same level as State Penn in the Big 10. Anyway, the recruiting philosophy used there is the same one used at Pitt, which is basically this; Pitt recruits the southeast, FLA particularly, very heavily. Do they get the 4 and 5 star kids, Rarely, but realize this; kids from that are may be 3 star, but compared to the rest of the country they’re 4-5 star and they… Read more »

Cephas does not fit a pro style offense; he’s too small, and not fast enough to make up for his lack of speed. He’s not a P5 player because of one good season on the freaking MAC.

This kid will end up playing special teams, that’s not worth 2-3 million.

Oh Reesey, Cephas is following Tinsley. Dante will have 60 catches next year in the slot in front of 107k fans. Keep throwing out “pro style offense” to make yourself feel better.

I wouldn’t get too excited ol buddy. Virtually anyone with the ability to read and write could hurl insults on a message board in order to get responses…yet curiously, you’re literally the only person on here that chooses to do so. Honestly don’t understand the enjoyment in that…guess we’re just wired differently.

Reese such venom. I’ve told you before I don’t drink but if I had to guess I’d say you might imbibe from your late night vitriol on this message board. If my wife and mother saw you call me a loser it might make them sad, could you please lighten up for me? Thanks buddy!

So we have a PS troll. What do we do with it? Respond, only makes him/her bolder. Ignore. It’s looking for attention, it will go away.

Here’s the thing though, he posts on other non-PSU related articles and isn’t always trolling. And his name “on campus stadium please” sort of indicates he is a Pitt fan on some level. What’s the deal?

The handle “on campus stadium please” is sarcasm directed at Pitt because they are renting an off-campus football stadium for their games (that one didn’t fly over my head). Actually, he couldn’t give a damn where they play.

You are getting better Dixon, we will keep working on your sarcasm meter. You will get it, walk first then run.
I do care where the panthers play, hence the name. No college athlete should have to use someone else’s facility, screams JV program.

Gotcha, sarcasm is hard to portray in written word. So much of it is in inflection and non verbal queues. You have have admit you’re being abnormally snarky in this particular thread.

It’s all in good fun, nice response kmp30. You can have a nice back and forth without stooping to “ped state” or “state penn”. Good on you!

I’m with you PB, getting really boring…same stale comments repeated over and over ad nauseam. I already ignore the majority of his posts, only been responding to ones I find mildly amusing.

You know it’s not boring Dixon…..the same comments actually come from my other pitt fans here. I’ve heard them for the last two years. First Slovis is the next great QB, now it’s IR Phil. You don’t ignore my posts, you can’t. Can’t wait to hear your response!

You know you love me pittband, and can’t ignore my posts let alone not respond. I’m a football expert so I try to give honest opinions, blind pitt fans here don’t like it. Just like you are in the band and never played football, but if you wrote about band stuff I would trust your opinion.
Look at all the engagement I bring here, PSN loves me and have contacted me to write a daily column. Remember, I am poster of the year.

Mr. Reese, let’s get your opinion on Malik McLain heading to PSU. Cephas was a low 2 star, what about a 4* transfer from FSU who went to IMG. 6’4″, 4.5 vertical threat.
What say you o wise one?
