SMU Transfer WR Dylan Goffney Picks Up First Offer From Pitt Upon Entering Portal
Dylan Goffney announced his intentions to enter the transfer portal just after 10:30 Friday morning and Tiquan Underwood wasted no time in hitting him up.
Goffney — a 6-foot-1, 215-pound wide receiver from SMU — announced via Twitter that he received an offer from Pitt just over an hour after he entered the transfer portal. The first of Western Kentucky, Arizona State and Bowling Green to offer him before 1:15 p.m.

As a three-star recruit out of Bridgeland High in Cypress, Texas in the class 2021, holding over 20 offers, including Pitt, he stayed home in Texas. But he did receive an offer from Pitt the first time around.
In two seasons at SMU, he recorded 32 receptions for 500 yards (15.6 yards per reception) and two touchdowns. He played in 12 games last season, recording 18 receptions for 369 yards (20.5 yards per catch) and two touchdowns.
Goffney is a big body with the ability to stretch the field, able to take the top of opposing defenses, and he has some starting experience — making four starts for the Mustangs last season.
Goffney is the third transfer wide receiver that Pitt has offered in recent weeks, joining California (Pa.)’s JaQuae Jackson and Eastern Michigan’s Darius Lassiter.
With a young, relatively inexperienced wide receiving corps, and four open scholarships as it stands, Pitt is going to add a wide receiver or two from the portal. Goffney wouldn’t be a one-year deal either as he still holds two seasons of eligiblity.
The trio of Konata Mumpfield, Bub Means and Daejon Reynolds is currently in place as Pitt’s starting unit, but there is very little in-game experience waiting in the wings.
