Friday night update: Ohio State no longer in the mix.
Former Pitt running back Rushel Shell first moved on to UCLA but had a change of heart and expressed an interest in returning to the Panthers. Head coach Paul Chryst shut him down, and now Shell must find a new school to continue his playing career. According to his mother, Ohio State is in the mix.
The former high school All-American has a list of three school he's interested in attending: Ohio State, Kentucky and West Virginia. Shell's intentions are staying close to his Hopewell, Pa., home because he has 16-month-old twin daughters.
In one season at Pitt, Shell rushed for 641 yards as a backup. Shell, 6-foot and 220 pounds, was a five-star recruit after setting Pennsylvania high school rushing records.
