Rushel Shell 


If it were in season, I wouldn't even be posting this, but this board has been dead recently...

Apparently Shell wanted back on the team at Pitt and was told no thanks.

The kid has ridiculous talent, but supposedly comes with a lot of baggage(failed drug tests, not a team guy, not a hard worker, etc.). He does have twin girls in W.Pa, so even though he initially wanted to go to UCLA, I look for him to stay within driving distance of Pittsburgh. I doubt we take a chance on him, but it is an interesting story to follow nonetheless.

It would really spice up the BYB if he were to come here and have an all American type career here. It wouldn't be the first time a Pitt RB has transferred here.

You know what else would spice up the BYB? If there actually was a BYB. This game needs to be brought back!

I doubt Pitt would release him to WVU for immediate scholarship.  But who knows considering Pitt/WVU will likely not play in the next decade or longer.

Note that he could transfer anywhere including WVU, he just would not be on scholarship for one year.

Re: Rushel Shell 


I haven't read their board in ages so I logged out and decided to take a look.  I almost forgot how utterly stupid many of them are.  I was thinking in about 10 years I'd love to see the Brawl return but I am not so sure about that.  I think their program is bad now and probably dead by then. Their fans are even ticking off the RB for 2014 out of Washington PA on the kid's twitter.  Sad sad stuff.

Dunno, they might, or might not.

But if he wants to be close to his daughters, and Chryst won't let him come back, I have to think he'll at least contact our staff to look into the possibility.

Re: Rushel Shell 


Similar situation with tyler boyd.. with PITT fans contacting him on twitter.  I follow some of the guys who cover WV sports on twitter for news updates.. I will see them tweet about players.. but I am glad none of them are contacting recruits directly looking very desperate like the PITT football news guys...

I guess since their fanbase is so small the group of diehard idiots will shine..

No.  He needed to enroll this week for Summer classes and decided against it.

The sad thing is, Pitt fans are buying into the notion that it's just a wvu fan using a persona. These guys lol.

Pitt really has no choice anymore since they won't let him back on the team. besides were full up at RB anyway. Unless he wants to try D line.

We have enough running backs now...but after he sat out a year due to the transfer rule Buie, Garrison, Smith would all be seniors, he'd be a RS sophmore, Smallwood might be a soph or a redshirt freshman.  I say if he wants to play here...welcome him in.
