Pitt walk-on Josh Ko not returning to Pitt

The Hawaiian guard will look for opportunities elsewhere

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt has had a major roster overhaul in the off season between incoming and outgoing transfers. Pitt was already set to lose one of it's walk-ons in Aron Phillips-Nwankwo due to graduation, but it seems junior guard Joshua Ko is not returning to Pitt either.

Brian went on to say he thinks Ko is looking for more playing time, which is understandable. Pitt has had at least two walk-ons most seasons but right now have zero. You can expect to hear some names that will be walk-ons as we get closer to the fall.

As we noted recently in our countdown, Ko has played in 15 games for Pitt over the past two years. He's been used sparingly, averaging about a minute per game, and 0.7 points and 0.1 rebounds at Pitt.

Correction: I wrongly said Pitt has no walk-on's left. Pitt will still have redshirt senior guard Mike Lecak as a walk-on.
