Boston College QB Phil Jurkovec is transferring to Pitt
Just days after the Eagles’ starter entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, Jurkovec has committed to Pitt, according to ESPN. Jurkovec, a native of Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, has played in 24 games across the last three seasons for the Eagles.
His transfer comes hours after Pitt QB Kedon Slovis entered the transfer portal. Slovis played one season at Pitt after transferring from USC.
Jurkovec's best season came in 2020 when he was 205-of-336 passing for 2,558 yards and 17 TDs with just five interceptions. He played in six games due to injury in 2021, but threw four interceptions and completed just 54% of his passes.
Jurkovec also dealt with injuries in 2022. He played in just eight of Boston College’s 12 games as the Eagles underachieved this past season and dealt with a slew of offensive line injuries. Jurkovec was 147-of-247 passing for 1,711 yards and 11 TDs and eight interceptions. At one point late in the season, Boston College coach Jeff Hafley said Jurkovec was in concussion protocol while also dealing with a rib injury and a knee injury.
Jurkovec came to Boston College ahead of the 2020 season after two seasons at Notre Dame. He’s been critical of his time with the Fighting Irish and has talked pointedly about the promises that he said Brian Kelly didn’t fulfill while he was with the Irish.
Jurkovec and Slovis are among several ACC starters pursuing a transfer. Devin Leary (NC State), Brennan Armstrong (Virginia) and Jeff Sims (Georgia Tech) are also in the portal.
