  • Kellen McAlone #48 — Jesuit College Preparatory School — Redshirt Freshman – 6’2″ – 200 pounds. Joining the team in 2014 as a walk on, he was a do-it-all receiver out of high school and extremely competitive. You have to love his spirit.

    • Gentry Ivery #88 — Mansfield Legacy High School — Freshman – 6’1″ – 195 pounds. Underrated coming out of high school in Texas, Ivery has been compared to Anquan Boldin by his high school coach, Chris Melson.
    • Joey Brungo #26 — Kiski Area High School — Redshirt Freshman – 6’1″ – 195 pounds. Joining the team in 2014 as a walk on, Brungo was a three time first-team all-conference selection in high school: twice as a receiver and once as a defensive back.
    • Jaquan Davidson #39 — Elizabeth Forward High School — Redshirt Freshman – 6’2″ – 205 pounds. Redshirted as a true freshman in 2014, Davidson played as a dual-threat quarterback and corner in high school, making the transition to receiver at Pitt. With a fantastic upside, he stands a chance to see the field next season or after.
    • Jordan Jones #32 — Joliet Catholic Academy — Redshirt Freshman – 6’3″ – 215 pounds. Jones joined the team in 2014 as a walk-on. He played as a receiver, tight end, and defensive back in high school. Pitt gets a player with extreme versatility in Jones.

    For the first time in a long time the Panthers have a deep panel of receivers. Receivers that both have produced and show extreme potential out of high school and junior colleges. Now let’s see if Voytik can spread the ball around and lower the percentage to a single receiver, even though that receiver is darn good. I guess when you have the talent, you have to get the most out of it.
