Former Pitt linebacker Kyle Nunn has transferred out of the program and committed to Findlay, a Division II school in his hometown of Findlay, Ohio. The move was announced on Findlay’s athletics website on Wednesday.
Nunn joined Pitt as a member of the program’s 2017 recruiting class. At Findlay High School, he was a standout safety who recorded 14 interceptions as a three-year starter and twice earned All-Ohio honors from the Associated Press. The Findlay native held a three-star rating as a recruit and chose Pitt over Indiana, Iowa State, Northwestern and West Virginia.
At Pitt, Nunn redshirted as a true freshman in 2017. The 6’3”, 230-pound defender then switched from safety to linebacker and saw action in 12 of the team’s 14 games during the 2018 season. And in 2019, Nunn played in all 13 of the Panthers’ games. However, the rising junior primarily served on special teams and finished his Pitt career with five tackles.
Nunn joins an Oilers team that is coming off a 7-4 campaign in 2019. He has two years of eligibility remaining and will be able to play immediately, as Findlay is a Division II program. He will be joined at Findlay by Grey Brancifort, a fellow Ohioan and linebacker who walked on at Pitt in 2018 but left the program in 2019.
With Nunn no longer on the Pitt roster, the program is down to 85 scholarship players for the 2020 season, which is the limit.
