  2020 BURLSWORTH TROPHY WINNER: Pitt senior center Jimmy Morrissey was named the 2020 season's winner of the Burlsworth Trophy that is annually presented to the most outstanding player in college football who began his career as a walk-on student-athlete, it was announced on Monday afternoon. During an online ceremony, the Burlsworth Trophy announced Morrissey as the recipient of this year's award over fellow finalists wide receiver Dax Milne of BYU and linebacker Grant Wilson of Arkansas.

Morrissey joins the likes of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, Michigan State's Kenny Willekes, Clemson's Hunter Renfrow and others as a winner of the award that honors former Arkansas walk-on great and Indianapolis Colts pick Brandon Burlsworth, who tragically died just days after being drafted in 1999. Morrissey recently completed his fourth consecutive season as Pitt's starting center. He started all 47 games that he played for the Panthers and is considered one of the top center prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft. - Pitt Football

  01/02/21 - M.J. DevonshirerFr/2024, Pittsburgh, 5-11, 182 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Devonshire - who spent the past two seasons at Kentucky before entering the NCAA transfer portal earlier this month - has committed to Pitt, helping solidify a secondary that will have to replace a number of key pieces. The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Devonshire will have four years of eligibility remaining. After redshirting his first season with the Wildcats, Devonshire played in nine of a possible 10 games last season, finishing with one tackle and one pass breakup. Though relatively early in his college career, Devonshire struggled to make an impact with Kentucky, never appearing on the Wildcats' two-deep during the 2020 season. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi didn't wait long to start reconstructing his roster, landing offensive lineman Marcus Minor on Thursday as a graduate transfer from Maryland. Minor, who has two years of eligibility, reported his verbal commitment on Twitter. Minor, 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, has played right tackle and right guard at Maryland. He played guard this season, but he was the Terrapins starting right tackle for 10 games in 2019. He also started one game in 2017 and three in 2018. - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

  12/16/20 - Kenny PickettrSr/2022, Pittsburgh, 6-2, 220 (DS#2 QB) + More +

  Pittsburgh's season is over. Quarterback Kenny Pickett's college career is not. The senior announced late Tuesday night he will return in 2021. Pickett had participated in Pitt's Senior Day festivities against Virginia Tech last month, an indication he was going to enter the NFL draft. Apparently not. "One more year," Pickett tweeted. Pickett passed for 2,408 yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season for the Panthers (6-5, 5-5). He missed two games with an ankle injury - both losses - and was up and down when he returned.

Pickett threw for 404 yards in a win over the Hokies but tossed four interceptions in a loss to Clemson before finishing with a touchdown and a pick in a season-ending 34-17 victory over Georgia Tech. The Panthers figured to be in the bowl mix after winning three of their final four games but voted to not participate in the postseason, a decision coach Pat Narduzzi supported after the team spent months playing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Pickett has passed for 7,984 yards with 39 touchdowns and 25 interceptions since taking over as the starter late in the 2017 season. He is fifth on the school's all-time yards passing list and fourth on the total yardage list, passing Hall of Famer Dan Marino late in the season. - AP College Football
