Pittsburgh Panthers Blocking Rushel Shell Transfer

The Pittsburgh Panthers are blocking former running back Rushel Shell from transferring to Arizona and Arizona State, sources close to the situation told the Tribune-Review on Friday.

Pitt PanthersWhen Shell decided to transfer, he submitted to Pitt officials a list of four possible destinations: Pac-12 schools California, UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State. He is free to transfer to California and UCLA.

Several former Pitt coaches, who were with the Panthers when the school recruited Shell, are employed at Arizona and Arizona State, including ASU coach Todd Graham.

Shell can request a university hearing, outside the athletics department, in an attempt to have Pitt’s ruling overturned.

Pitt also would block him from transferring to any ACC institution, but Shell has expressed no desire to attend a school in that conference.
