Pitt lost a tight end Friday when sophomore Charles Reeves Jr. was dismissed from the team by coach Pat Narduzzi for disciplinary reasons.

Reeves, 6-foot-5, 280 pounds, was rated one of the top tight ends in the nation last year when he graduated from Steubenville High School. He did not play as a freshman and redshirted in 2016.

Reeves is the second tight end to leave the team this year, following junior Chris Clark.

Narduzzi prepared for a shortage at the position when he signed Arkansas graduate transfer Will Gragg, who has two years of eligibility remaining. In addition, tight ends Tyler Sear, a sophomore, and Grant Carrigan, a redshirt freshman, are returning. There are two tight ends in Pitt’s class of 2019, junior college transfer Travis Koontz of Ventura (Calif.) College, and Jason Collier, a senior at West Deptford (N.J.) High School.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
