Camp Opens With Minor Roster Moves

Training camp opened today and while there were no major developments, there were several minor roster moves announced by coach Dave Wannstedt:

- DB Aundre Wright and WR/PR Aaron Smith are out for the season due to injury. It’s unknown how long they may be out. Wright played in 24 games over the past two seasons, but made a position switch this Spring to CB, so it’s unclear how much he would have contributed anyway. Smith contributed a bit as a punt returner last season, but the Panthers should hopefully be okay at that position with Cam Saddler.

- With several FBs on the roster including redshirt Junior Henry Hynoski, Kevin Adams has moved to LB.

- Incoming freshman RB Andre Givens will not be playing at Pitt this season as he’ll be attending prep school. He was a fairly talented back rated as a three-star prospect and recruited by Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati, and Wisconsin among others. With Pitt’s depth at RB, he likely wouldn’t have played this season anyway.
