Pitt adds another transfer

Todd Graham will add one more transfer this offseason, as offensive lineman Tom Ricketts is transferring from Penn State to Pitt.

Ricketts, the son of former Pitt offensive tackle Tom Ricketts, was a 2010 graduate of North Allegheny and ranked among the nation's top prospects in that recruiting class. He was the No. 6 recruit in the state of Pennsylvania, the No. 19 offensive tackle in the nation, and one of the nation's top 200 prospects overall.

Ricketts signed with Penn State over offers from Pitt, Boston College, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Duke, Florida State, Illinois, Maryland, Northwestern, Purdue, Stanford, Syracuse, and Virginia.

He redshirted as a true freshman at Penn State last season.

Ricketts is the fifth transfer to join Pitt this offseason. Safety Ray Vinopal and cornerback Cullen Christian transferred to Pitt from Michigan; wide receiver Brendon Felder transferred from North Carolina; and running back Zach Brown transferred from Wisconsin.
