2 players leave Pitt football team
Pitt running back Corey Davis and tight end Brendan Carozzoni have left the team and will not accompany the Panthers on Tuesday when they travel to Birmingham, Ala., for the BBVA Compass Bowl.
Davis, a sophomore from Gladewater, Texas, who was recruited by former coach Todd Graham, was fifth on the depth chart at running back and had no carries or receptions. Last season, he rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries and caught five passes for 64 yards as a freshman. He also averaged 21.1 yards on 17 kickoff returns.
Davis' departure leaves Pitt with only 12 players from Graham's 21-man recruiting class of 2011.
Carozzoni, a redshirt sophomore from Rocky River, Ohio, had no receptions this season after making four catches for 43 yards last season.
Losing Davis and Carozzoni allows Pitt to add two additional scholarship players to its 2013 class that currently includes 21 prospects.
