Pitt receiver Cameron O’Neil has entered the transfer portal, according to John McGonigal of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The native of Phenix City, Alabama, redshirted as a freshman in 2018 and did not record any stats as a member of the Pitt receiving corps in 2019.
O’Neil committed to Pitt in 2018 after posting two outstanding seasons at the Glenwood School in Smiths Station, Alabama. As an upperclassman, he amassed more than 1,300 receiving yards and earned first-team All-State honors. His best season in the Yellowhammer State came in 2017, when he racked up 705 yards and 10 touchdowns on 44 catches.
The 6’1”, 205-pound pass-catcher held three-star ratings from 247Sports and Rivals at the time of his commitment and picked Pitt over Illinois, Memphis, Virginia and Wisconsin as well as several FCS and Group of Five schools. It is unclear where he intends to transfer, but a move is all but imminent given Pat Narduzzi’s stance on Pitt players entering the portal.
”If a kid’s name goes in the transfer portal, you can pretty much kiss him goodbye,” Narduzzi told Jerry DiPaola of the Tribune-Review in January 2019. “I’m not going to have one guy with one foot in and one foot out.”
