Head coach Todd Graham’s had his share of transfers joining Pitt, but now he may be losing one. Tight end Brock DeCicco could be on his way out of Graham’s system. Pitt, for now, isn’t saying anything:
“Brock DeCicco has been excused from practice for personal reasons. We will respectfully decline to comment on his situation until there has been a change in his status.”
While DeCicco’s loss would hurt Pitt’s depth at tight end, the move makes sense for him. With new Illinois transfer, Hubie Graham, now in town, DeCicco might not get utilized much this season. In terms of strictly getting playing time, a move might be in his best interest.
The competition provided by Hubie Graham probably is less of a reason for DeCicco potentially transfering than the new offense. It may be difficult to see just how the tight ends will fit in.
