The WPIAL_Insider twitter account just tweeted that he is seeking to transfer from Pitt...I'm on my cell phone so I don't know how to copy the tweet onto here but I thought everyone might be interested in this.
I already posted something in the twitter thread but as I said in there, I've heard he's had academic issues and also that he wants to play in warmer weather. He wasn't at practice today apparently and Chryst wouldn't say whether he will be at practice tomorrow.
Dominate The State
That's a blow.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
They're talking about it over on the Pitt board but I'm banned from their board and also I can't see VIP info. Perhaps someone who can could provide some insight into what is being said?
The kid has twin daughters, is in a Paul Chryst run heavy team, would have to sit out a year, and was the former #1 HS RB in the nation. Needless to say transferring doesn't make sense. Pitt has been an NFL RB factory as of late... Stop crying, put in two solid years against the ACC teams, and go to the NFL to support your family with a nice paycheck.
Yeah I saw that after I posted this, didn't mean to double it up, but then I figured everyone would want to talk about it and get some fun at Pitt's expense and this would keep it off the twitter board haha
is this definitely happening, seems very odd. I guess they have Isaac Bennett but i don't know much about their RB depth.
When recruited he was offered $1 per fan at Pitt games, unfortunately he can't provide for his family on $52 per year.
As for the warm weather comment, he heard the SEC pays better.
WE NEED A PITT BAROMETER PLEASE!!!
my Pitt friend says he is just having personal issues and not transferring...prob being optimistic
This will be their excuse for another awful season. Like they really would have been successful anyhow.
The fun part of being sanctioned is seeing how we are still better than a lot of teams that aren't heavily sanctioned. It sure makes things a lot more optimistic, thanks for being there for us Pitt.

One guy never makes the team, but man if this comes to fruition that would be an absolute dagger to an already thin roster.
Follow me on Twitter @Lions247
Agreed, he is by far their best offensive player. I saw him play a few times last year and the kid is a truck. Imagine Zwinak with more speed. Pitt's OL is in pretty bad shape, perhaps he knows they are gonna suck and wants to go somewhere that he can run behind a decent OL?
What a bummer for the Pitt program.

Get that flight tracker ready! I bet there is a certain slime ball on the west coast getting a private jet fueled up at this very moment.
He seriously has twin daughters? That is just bad luck that his HS GF gets pregnant and then they have twins.
No, its good.....me being one that doesnt go to the twitter thread lol
Suck It Emmert!! and "Sorry for not being sorry for being a Penn Stater" - Philafan
I wouldn't exactly say Pitt is a running back factory. Other than McCoy, they don't have any other starting running backs in the NFL. Stephens-Howling is a career backup/KO returner and Lewis barely played this year(may not even make a roster this year).
“Never trust a government that doesn't trust its own citizens with guns.”
Hmmm... academic issues? Warmer climate? This kid seems like a natural fit for UNC. North Carolina is definitely warmer than western PA and with UNC's no show/no work classes the academic issues would go away.
And if he's smart, his handler can auction him off to the highest bidder, just as long as Russell doesn't know about it, so he could be in for a nice pay day also.

Rumor has it ASU is the likely landing spot, Todd Graham is the HC.
If that comes true, Pitt fans will give us an epic barometer
Bob L has an update over there, and the one view-able post is pretty epic.
Would be funny yet sad if he ended up at U$C.
Just went over and didn't see a viewable post
@meyer 4 prez I'm glad Bill K and Alex G keeps it real with us, instead of getting our hopes up.
