One of the most prolific tight-ends of all college football, Kyle Pitts played a pivotal role towards the Florida Gators’ recent success. The 6’6 weapon, in tandem with fellow NFL prospect Kyle Trask, propelled the Gators to a 8-4 record and a trip to the Cotton Bowl. Even more impressive, Mr. Reliable was targeted 65 times this season, dropping 0 passes. As he prepares for the draft tonight, Pitts has announced his recent signing with Jordan Brand.
Pitts joins the growing exclusive JB gridiron roster, which currently includes superstars like Michael Thomas, LeVeon Bell, Cameron Jordan, and Joe Haden. For the former Mackey Award winner and first team AP All-American player, this is a dream come true.
It’s amazing. There’s only a select few of us. To have the opportunity to represent this great brand is something special.
I wore Jordan in college, and I just loved it. Not everybody gets to wear it. It’s a unique situation, to be able to wear it at the next level.-Kyle Pitts when discussing becoming a sponsored athlete of Jordan Brand
