Kedon Slovis is officially the starting quarterback of the Pittsburgh Panthers.
The Panthers open the season September 1 against West Virginia, and Slovis is now officially tasked with leading the offense.
While Slovis has certainly faded from the spotlight from where he was during his time at USC, it’s important to remember he can absolutely play.
Prior to transferring to Pitt, he threw for 7,576 yards, 58 touchdowns and 24 interceptions with the Trojans.
His best season came as a freshman in 2019 when he threw for 3,502 yards, 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
However, he was never able to regain the magic of that season and ultimately left the school when Lincoln Riley took over.
Now, he’s QB1 for the Panthers, and if he’s able to get back to his old ways, Pat Narduzzi is going to have himself a gamer under center.
Pitt fans should be very happy with this decision. There’s a lot to be optimistic about going into the season with Slovis as QB1.
