 After already landing an elite transfer quarterback in Kedon Slovis, the Pitt Panthers have received a commitment from another highly touted offensive transfer.  After entering the transfer portal from the University of Akron, wide receiver Konata Mumpfield announced on Twitter around 1 PM today that he will join the Pitt Panthers next season.  

Mumpfield, as a freshman this past season, led Akron in every receiving category with 63 catches, 751 yards, and 8 touchdowns.  He also received second team All-MAC honors.  Mumpfield will certainly replace wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis who announced his transfer on social media yesterday.

Mumpfield had offers from Kentucky, USC, Florida State, and Louisville, among others and was seen by many as the best wide receiver available in the transfer portal this offseason.  For Pat Narduzzi to steal a transfer from USC's shiny new head coach, Lincoln Riley is stunning, as Riley has dominated the recruiting market since being hired.  

Mumpfield will join a formidable offense loaded with talent.  Including the ability to line up alongside Biletnikoff winner, Jordan Addision.  This is huge news for Pitt after it was reported Mumpfield attended the Peach Bowl on Thursday.  It truly shows what winning does for a program's future.
