Pitt lands Penn State grad transfer safety John Petrishen

Pitt Football has made a late addition to its 2019 roster. Made official on Wednesday — Penn State graduate transfer John Petrishen will join Pittsburgh, head coach Pat Narduzzi confirmed. During his three seasons with Penn State, Petrishen recorded eight total tackles. A former 3-star recruit, Petrishen has two years of eligibility remaining.

The move is a bit of a homecoming, too. Petrishen played his prep football at Central Catholic in Pittsburgh. That’s the same school that produced fellow future Panther Damar Hamlin, one of the team’s defensive standouts.
