PITTSBURGH—Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi has announced the addition of transfer Kedon Slovis, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback who spent the past three seasons at the University of Southern California.

Slovis, who announced his intention to transfer to Pitt on Tuesday evening via The Players’ Tribune, will enroll in January and have two seasons of immediate eligibility for the Panthers.

Over his three seasons at USC, Slovis played in 27 games, making 26 starts. He completed 68% of his passes (652 of 953) for 7,576 yards with 58 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.

As a freshman in 2019, Slovis threw for 3,502 yards with 30 touchdowns against nine interceptions, while completing 72% of his passes (282 of 392). He garnered first team Freshman All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and was the Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year.

“In looking at potential transfer quarterbacks, Kedon was the number one guy we wanted,” Narduzzi said. “You look at the tape, his talent is evident. He has played at a high level, has great pocket presence, a great arm, and he is a leader. Just as important, Kedon will be a great fit in our locker room and our quarterback room.”

A native of Scottsdale, Ariz., Slovis threw for more than 5,500 yards with 50 touchdowns over his final two seasons at Desert Mountain High School, where his quarterbacks coach was Pro Football Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.
