PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Since earlier this week when Pitt freshman tailback Rushel Shell decided to transfer, the question became, where?
Chris Peak, of PantherLair.com, is reporting Shell submitted a list of four schools to Pitt – Arizona, Arizona State, Cal and UCLA. Peak says Pitt will release Shell to UCLA or Cal, but not to Arizona or Arizona State.
Shell could still attend ASU or Arizona, but would have to pay his own way to attend; during the year he must sit out as a transfer. If Shell chose a school Pitt was okay with, he would still have to sit out a season, but his tuition and room and board could be covered by that school.
