In a matter of hours Monday, Pitt’s quarterback situation took a dramatic turn.

First, ESPN reported Kedon Slovis was entering the NCAA transfer portal, a move apparently triggered by the bigger news: Pine-Richland graduate Phil Jurkovec will transfer to Pitt from Boston College, also according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel. Jurkovec will join his Boston College offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti Jr., who left BC for Pitt a year ago.

When he decided to transfer from USC to Pitt, Slovis said the decision was “a no-brainer.” But that changed when Jurkovec put his name in the portal after Slovis’ up-and-down 2021 season at Pitt.
