Pittman joins Florida State after three seasons as a rotation player for Oregon. He caught 38 passes for 547 yards and 2 touchdowns during his time with the Ducks.
This decision comes just days after Florida State offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham departed for the same role with Oregon. Pittman was linked to FSU before Dillingham left, but still decided to commit to Florida State and coach Mike Norvell.
The Seminoles have since promoted offensive line coach Alex Atkins to their offensive coordinator position. Atkins previously served as the offensive coordinator at Charlotte.
Pittman is a former 4-star recruit who has the pedigree to turn into a major weapon for Florida State in 2022. The Seminoles No. 1 receiver last season was Ontaria Wilson, who caught 23 passes for 382 yards. As quarterback Jordan Travis continues to improve, Florida State could decide to lean on its receivers more often.
In 2021, Pittman caught 12 passes for 197 yards in 7 games.
