Pitt loads up on QBs after transfers by DiNucci, MacVittie

PITTSBURGH (AP) After losing a pair of quarterbacks over the last month to transfers, Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi and offensive coordinator Shawn Watson replenished their ranks at football's most important position on Wednesday, as two of Pitt's 15 early signees are quarterbacks.

Freshman Kenny Pickett started the team's final game against Miami on Nov. 24, a 24-14 upset of the then-No. 2 Hurricanes, and seems to be the team's answer as a starter going forward.

That prompted the December transfers of redshirt sophomore Ben DiNucci and redshirt freshman Thomas MacVittie, leaving the Panthers with just one scholarship quarterback. Pitt signed Nick Patti from St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey, and Ricky Town from Ventura (California) College.
