Iowa, Wisconsin, VT possibilities for Pitt tight end
Share with others:
Pitt tight end Brock DeCicco has decided to transfer and has asked for his official release from his scholarship.
DeCicco, who is from Thomas Jefferson, left camp after Wednesday's practice and was given a few days to think about his future and has decided that he doesn't fit into Pitt's new spread offense.
The Panthers utilize an H-back in a lot of their formations but not a traditional tight end, though there are a few formations where a tight end is needed.
DeCicco, 6-5, 240, is considering a number of options but will likely end up at one of three schools, Iowa, Wisconsin or Virginia Tech, as those all recruited him coming out of high school.
If DeCicco does transfer to another Division I-A school, he would have to sit out this season and then he'd have two years of eligibility remaining.
Pitt coach Todd Graham issued the following statement: "Brock informed us today of his intention to transfer to another school. We have enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to get to know Brock the past eight months and wish him only the very best in his future endeavors."
