Quarterback Jeff George Jr. transfers from Michigan to Pitt
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Former Illinois quarterback Jeff George Jr. has transferred from Michigan to Pittsburgh.
Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said Monday that George has enrolled at the school and joined the team. Narduzzi says it is not immediately clear if the son of former NFL quarterback Jeff George will be eligible to play this season.
George played in 11 games for Illinois in 2016 and 2017, throwing for 1,743 yards, 11 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He left the Illini as a graduate transfer in the spring and chose Michigan after visiting with the Panthers. George practiced with the Wolverines during training camp.
Pitt is set at starting quarterback, with sophomore Kenny Pickett to make his second college start when the Panthers host Albany on Saturday.
