FSU football received some exciting news late Sunday night when Oregon wide receiver Mycah Pittman announced intentions to transfer to the Noles.
FSU fans who follow recruiting know the Noles failed to sign a wide receiver in the Early Signing Period, and the staff would be busy in the transfer portal for the position.
The relationship between Pittman and FSU began before the Early Signing Period, with former FSU offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham personally recruiting Pittman, visiting him on the west coast a couple of times.
Pittman visited Tallahassee the first weekend in December and got to see how Mike Norvell would use him in the FSU offense.
Pittman decided to leave Oregon because the head coach, Mario Cristobal, didn’t provide many opportunities in the passing game.
Now, Pittman will get to show Cristobal what he can do since he’s the head coach at Miami, an arch-rival of the Noles who play every year.
FSU coaches took to the transfer portal last season in hopes of bolstering the wide receiver position. They signed former Kansas wide receiver Andrew Parchment, who was brought in to be the No. 1 guy.
Parchment showed a couple of flashes, none brighter than the 4th and 14 reception against Miami for the eventual game-winning touchdown. However, his season overall was a disappointment, so I wanted to discuss some differences between Parchment and Pittman. One obvious difference is Pittman was a top 100 player coming out of high school.
