8 Pitt players will receive release to transfer out from basketball program

When it rains, it pours; although considering some of the recent weather, this forecast shouldn’t be all too surprising. However, perhaps there’s no need to rush out and buy a new raincoat just yet.

According to ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Goodman: On Friday, eight Pittsburgh basketball players will receiver a release to transfer elsewhere if they chose.

This news comes out a week after Kevin Stallings was let go of his head coaching duties.

Update (12:15 p.m.) — According to Goodman, the eight players are as follows:

Stewart, Brown, Carr and Stevenson are all promising freshmen for the Panthers; that quartet combined to score 1,021 of Pitt’s 1,985 points this season (54.1 percent). Stewart shot 42.5 percent on three-pointers in ACC play, too, which ranked 9th in the league.

An important note from Corey Evans — a college basketball analyst from Rivals. The players are simply doing their due diligence here.
