Roster turnover continues for Capel, Pitt: Ithiel Horton in transfer portal

Ithiel Horton, after three years and two seasons with Pitt basketball, has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Things continue to trend in a tough direction for head coach Jeff Capel and this program.

After averaging 13.2 points during his freshman season at Delaware (2018-19), Horton transferred to play for Capel at Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-3 guard from New Jersey took a redshirt year in the 2019-20 season.

Over the last two seasons, though, Horton appeared in 35 games (26 starts) for the Panthers; he averaged 9.2 points and 1.5 assists per game.

During his time with Pittsburgh, Horton was one of the program’s top 3-point shooters. Horton shot 37.9 percent from deep in the 2021-22 campaign.

Horton had his best stretch of play in a Pitt uniform in February this season; as the Panthers went on a three-game winning streak, Horton averaged 20.3 points per contest, while shooting 56.5 percent on 3-point attempts as Pitt took down Florida State, NC State and North Carolina.
