Pitt players Ray Graham, Devin Street, Lafayette Pitts charged with off-campus assault. According to a university statement, the players deny any involvement in the incident, nor have they been questioned on the matter.

Pitt released the following statement a short time ago, on the alleged incident involving Ray Graham, Devin Street and Lafayette Pitts.

The three players were charged late Thursday for assault and conspiracy, in the early hours of October 21. The alleged incident would have taken place shortly after the team returned to Pittsburgh from its 20-6 win at Buffalo.

“The University of Pittsburgh Athletic Department was recently made aware of a police report relating to an incident allegedly involving three of our football student-athletes on October 21. Those individuals have denied any involvement with the situation and have offered to speak with authorities, although to date they have not been questioned or received any court documents. We take matters of player discipline very seriously and will continue to cooperate with any investigation. However, we will not, and hope others will not, rush to judgment on these misdemeanor allegations. All three players will remain active members of our program while we gain more clarity on this situation.”
