Confirmed by Head Coach Paul Chryst, Sophomore RB Rushel Shell has announced that he will transfer from the University of Pittsburgh.
“Rushel and I met on Tuesday morning, and he informed me of his final decision to transfer,” Chryst said in a brief statement. “I wish him only the best moving forward. Out of respect for Rushel, his family and his privacy, this will be my final comment on the matter.”
He hasn't said where he will transfer, but many believe that it will be out west to a Pac-12 school.
Junior RB Isaac Bennett is expected to be the starting RB when Florida State visits the Panthers on Labor Day to open the 2013 season.
