Redshirt sophomore Cameron Johnson will graduate and transfer out of Pitt following the spring semester, school officials announced Saturday morning. The Moon Township, Pa., native will earn his degree in three years at Pitt and have two seasons of eligibility remaining after receiving a medical redshirt for the 2014-15 season.
Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game a year ago as the Panthers finished 16-17 overall and 4-14 in ACC play. A two-time All-ACC Academic Team and a 2017 CoSIDA Academic All-District selection, Johnson finished fifth in the ACC in three-point percentage (.415) and eighth in three-point field goals (2.36 per game).
Pitt currently has a seven-player recruiting class featuring highly touted junior college prospects Jared Wilson-Frame and Troy Simons and high school standouts Aaron Thompson, Marcus Carr, Terrell Brown, Peace Ilegomah and Shamiel Stevenson. The Panthers have additional scholarships available and will look to reshape the 2017-18 roster with graduate transfers, traditional transfers and late signees. Johnson will become the fourth player to transfer out of the program since the close of the 2016-17 season.
