Breaking: Prominent ACC Quarterback To Enter Transfer Portal

Pitt QB Kedon Slovis

Pitt QB Kedon Slovis

Kedon Slovis' time at Pitt is over less than a year after it started. The quarterback, who transferred to Pitt from USC last December, entered the transfer portal on Monday.

Slovis threw for 2,397 yards, 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions to lead Pitt to an 8-4 record and Sun Bowl berth, though he won't play in it. His 58.4 completion percentage is the lowest of his four-year college career.

The senior has one year of eligibility left due to COVID-19.

After a stellar start as a freshman at USC and 5-1 campaign during a shortened 2020 COVID-19 season, Slovis lost his footing. In 2021, he threw for 2,153 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight picks — completing 65 percent of his throws — while leading USC to a 4-8 record.

In his three years at USC, Slovis threw for 7,576 yards, 58 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. 

The news seems to come as a shock to Slovis' current teammates. Cornerback Marquis Williams tweeted that he expected Slovis, who was voted a captain this fall, to inform the team of his decision first. 

With a vacant spot at quarterback, Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec could replace Slovis. He entered the transfer portal on Friday and is interested in Pitt. 

The senior, who spent three seasons at Boston College after transferring from Notre Dame, has one year of eligibility left from the pandemic.
