Pitt received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 JUCO QB Ricky Town.
Town has bounced around a-plenty since initially joining the collegiate ranks. A four-star recruit in the 2015 class, the 6-foot-3, 214-pounder initially signed with USC, then transferred to Arkansas that August of his inaugural year in college. He did not see the field in two years with the Razorbacks and eventually opted for a transfer to JUCO program Ventura College last January. Now resurfacing at Pitt, Town will have two years eligibility remaining starting in 2018. With Max Browne moving on and Ben DiNucci and Thomas MacVittie set to transfer, Town will have a relatively clean road map to a starting job if he can jostle his way past freshman Kenny Pickett.

Former USC redshirt freshman QB Ricky Town is seeking a transfer from Arkansas.

As Razorback supporters have noted, Arkansas coaches have their eyes on Cole Kelley as the school's quarterback once Austin Allen moves on, leaving Town lower on the depth chart. Town left USC after the spring and summer while facing a similar playing time dilemma. He was once a highly prized recruit.

Former USC freshman QB Ricky Town will transfer to Arkansas, according to Joe Schad of ESPN.

Town said the decision came down to Arkansas' pro-style offense. The former highly regarded recruit left USC after spending the spring and summer there. He will need to sit out the 2015 season, but Arkansas will lose Brandon Allen after this year. We all know Bret Bielema focuses on the ground game, but if Town shows promise he could help open up that offense.

Ricky Town, the No. 2-ranked pocket passer in the Class of 2015, de-committed from Alabama and verbally pledged to USC.

"I'm proud to be a part of the Trojan Family!" Town said via text. "I've seen many of the top programs and what they have to offer. However, when I had the chance to get on the USC campus last week and spend time with Coach Sarkisian and his staff, I knew after those meetings that USC is where I want to be." Town began to back off his commitment after Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier bolted for Michigan. AJ McCarron's successor may be recent Florida State transfer Jacob Coker, eligible to play immediately in 2014.
