The NCAA's flurry of transfer moves has landed another player from a top college football program. This time, it's Michigan offensive lineman Nolan Ulizio.

On Sunday, Ulizio took to Twitter to announce that he would be spending his final year of college eligibility at Pitt.

Ulizio was a three-star prospect in Michigan's Class of 2015.

247Sports had him rated as a top-1300 prospect, the No. 141 offensive tackle in the country, and the No. 61 prospect from the state of Ohio.

Michigan fans might be ultimately indifferent to losing an offensive lineman who was not a consistent starter in 2018, but the move will certainly be a boost for Pitt.

The Panthers' recruiting class for 2019 is average at best.

247Sports rates it as the No. 51 class in the country, and the No. 10 class in the ACC.

With the addition of Ulizio, Pat Narduzzi will at least be able to add an offensive lineman to his ranks with some experience against top programs.

Pitt went 7-5 in the regular season, earning a spot in the ACC Championship Game against Clemson but ultimately falling short against the eventual national champions.

The Panthers accepted an invitation to the Sun Bowl, where they narrowly lost to Stanford, 14-13.
