Offensive Line Target Chooses Pitt Over WVU, Others

Published

on

Hampton offensive lineman Keldrick Wilson has committed to Pitt as a graduate transfer for the 2020 season.

A 6-foot-5, 299-pound tackle from Mt. Ulla, North Carolina, chose Pitt over fellow finalists Indiana, USC and West Virginia. He will have one season of eligibility remaining with the Panthers.

Wilson played in 11 games for the Pirates in the 2019 season in the most extensive action of his career. He played in 10 games in 2017 and redshirted in 2016 and again in 2018.

Hampton, a historically black university in Hampton, Virginia, finished 5-7 and was 1-5 in the FCS Big South conference in 2019.

WVU head coach Neal Brown has talked this offseason about the potential to add a graduate transfer offensive lineman to the roster. WVU will be tasked with replacing three starting-quality linemen in 2020.
