Kedon Slovis Transfers from Pitt to BYU

Quarterback Kedon Slovis has found his third home to continue his college football career, announcing on Twitter he would be joining the BYU Cougars, leaving the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Here was Slovis’ announcement.


Slovis, who played at Pitt last year, has played four seasons in college football and has thrown for 9,973 yards. Slovis played at USC in the Pac-12 (2019-21) and with the Panthers in the ACC (2022).

Slovis burst on the scene in 2019 when he won the Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year. He threw 30 touchdown passes and nine interceptions that season while completing 72% of his passes.


Last year at Pittsburgh, he had his worst statistical year of his career. He completed just 58.4% of his passes and threw 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He’ll compete to win the starting job at BYU for the program’s first season in the Big 12, which BYU joins after being an independent since 2011.

Slovis has one year of eligibility remaining.

BYU won four consecutive games to end the season in 2022, including a 24-23 victory over SMU in the New Mexico Bowl. They open the 2023 season with back-to-back home games against Sam Houston and Southern Utah.
