Multiple sources have confirmed that Vanderbilt is blocking Beaver Falls High School graduate Sheldon Jeter from transferring to Pitt.
Jeter, who played his freshman season at Vanderbilt last season, announced on Friday that he was transferring to a school closer to home.
Jeter has several options to deal with the situation. He can appeal to the Vanderbilt athletics department to overturn coach Kevin Stallings' ruling. He can enroll at Pitt and pay tuition for one year before being put on scholarship. Or he can transfer to a school other than Pitt.
It is not known if Stallings blocked Jeter from transferring to schools other than Pitt. Jeter also considered Penn State before choosing Vanderbilt when he was at Beaver Falls.mobilehome - breaking - pittsports
