Dewayne Hendrix, a former four-star defensive end from O’Fallon High School in Illinois, has been in search of a new home where he will look to resume his college football career.
It was four months ago that Hendrix left the Tennessee Volunteers program and he was weighing options from Iowa State, Pittsburgh and Northern Illinois.
On Monday night, he announced his decision. Hendrix will be transferring to the Pittsburgh Panthers.
I would thank all the schools that showed interested in me. I am eager to begin the next stage of my college career at Pitt !!!

When Hendrix was being recruited to Tennessee, he was rated as the No. 3 player in his state and the No. 5 overall defensive end.
Unfortunately for Hendrix, he didn’t see much playing time at good ol’ Rocky Top.
Now that he is with Pitt and head coach Pat Narduzzi, Hendrix is hoping that the Pittsburgh Panthers will be the right place for him to finally have the opportunity to shine.
Of course, Dewayne Hendrix will be forced to sit out the entire 2015 due to NCAA transfer rules.
