Pitt Officially Announces Addition of Grad Transfer Mike Hueitt Jr.



On Saturday morning, Pitt officially announced the addition of Mike Hueitt Jr., one day after PSN‘s initial report of his commitment.

Hueitt is a 6-foot-3 guard out of Fayetteville, North Carolina, who has spent time at three different colleges throughout his career. Hueitt began his career at Old Dominion, then transferred to UNCG. There, he had his best season at the division one level, averaging 4.7 points per game and hitting 48 threes at 38%. Then, Hueitt produced solid numbers at Division II Catawba in 2020-21, averaging more than seven points per contest.

“Coach Capel and the entire staff were very welcoming and made sure that I knew it was a family environment the minute I got on campus,” Hueitt told PSN. “I have a long-standing relationship with Coach Brown and the minute we caught back up were great vibes. The team is amazing, and the players are like family already. I love the city of Pittsburgh and love everything Pitt has to offer. I can’t wait to be a part of an amazing tradition and help continue to add to the legacy.”

Hueitt has one year of eligibility remaining and endured a quick recruitment process once he was notified by the NCAA that he was eligible for this year. Pitt hosted him on a visit on Thursday and Friday, and he chose to commit to the Panthers while on the trip.

Pitt still has one scholarship remaining. The Panthers’ current back court consists of Ishmael Leggett, Carlton Carrington, Jaland Lowe, and Hueitt.

Great insight Rob🤣🤣
I like the additional depth at the guard position. He is older, has a lot of experience and will hopefully bring leadership to our young guards👍
HTP and welcome aboard Mike!
