Sterling Gibbs Transferring From Texas, Pitt Not Likely

Ashton's brother is leaving Texas (Michael C. Johnson-US PRESSWIRE)

Sterling Gibbs (yes, brother of one Ashton Gibbs) has had some problems settling into a program and he's on the move again.

After signing with Maryland, he was granted his release from the program when Gary Williams retired. He headed to Texas, but is apparently seeking more playing time and will transfer.

This is barely worth a mention from the Pitt perspective. Even though Pitt had initially shown some interest before he committed to Maryland, there wasn't any room for him after he got out of his scholarship. It's the same situation this time around and the move wouldn't make sense for Gibbs, either, even if Pitt wanted him.

His big desire is for playing time and Pitt won't be able to offer that - especially with the Trey Zeigler pickup. Along with Zeigler, Pitt has Tray Woodall, Chris Jones, John Johnson, Cam Wright, and James Robinson in the backcourt. Lots of young guys in the mix, but there's no chance he would come in and grab a ton of minutes.

So, where's he headed?

The last time around, Louisville, Notre Dame, Seton Hall, Providence, and Dayton supposedly had shown some interest. UConn also reportedly offered later as well. I'm not up on number of scholarships for all of those teams and some things have changed to be sure ... especially at UConn where they're not even eligible for NCAAs next year. The Huskies also have Omar Calhoun coming in, so that might be a deterrent as well.

ZagsBlog also reports that he said he missed home on Twitter recently, so there's that.
