PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – The Pitt Panthers released a statement Tuesday saying quarterback Pat Bostick has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility with the team.

The decision was not unexpected.

Bostick, 22, from Lancaster, Pa., was a highly-touted recruit coming out of high school in 2006.

During his freshman year in 2007, Bostick started eight games, recorded 1,500 passing yards, eight touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Bostick was beat out for the starting quarterback position by Bill Stull in his sophomore season, then red-shirted in 2009 and only played in three games this season.
