Oregon transfer wide receiver Mycah Pittman was the first piece in the coaching staff addressing not signing any prep wide receivers in the 2022 recruiting class.
Pittman had a productive freshman campaign with the assistance of former first-round pick Justin Herbert. However, injuries, poor QB play, and a conservative offensive approach limited Pittman’s production over the next two seasons.
None of his injuries were major, so Pittman’s talent hasn’t wained as a former top 100 recruit in the 2019 class. His production as a freshman and talent is why I’ve been higher on him than most since he arrived in Tallahassee.
Pittman has been one of the most consistent options for Jordan Travis. He’s sure-handed, can beat man-to-man coverage, and doesn’t waste time getting upfield after the catch. He also has the potential to be a major upgrade at the punt return position.
Pittman will be an upgrade if he doesn’t allow punts to hit the ground(he usually hasn’t in practice). He’ll likely be the guy to lead the Noles in receptions and could play a big role in keeping the chains moving on offense.
