Pitt has made another late addition to its football roster for the coming season.
The Panthers announced Wednesday that linebacker Kylan Johnson will join them as a graduate transfer from Florida. With a telecommunications degree in hand, he’ll be immediately eligible to play in 2019.
"Kylan is a really smart player with a great nose for the football," coach Pat Narduzzi said in a news release. "He can play either outside linebacker position and is a great fit for our scheme. Kylan's experience and athleticism will be immediate assets for our linebacker group."
Johnson made nine starts and played 33 games with the Gators, in which he recorded 83 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and one sack. The Dallas native was rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals coming out of Skyline High School.
