Sophomore Salath Williams Transferring

As first tweeted by the Trib's Jerry DiPaola, redshirt sophomore Salath Williams is leaving the program. According to Paul Zeise, Williams has been released by Pitt to five PSAC teams (think IUP).

WIlliams played in five games last season before injuring his shoulder and missing the rest of the season. He did not catch a pass in his short Pitt career.

More after the jump.

Losing a player is always a disappointment, but if there was one area where Pitt could tolerate some attrition, it's at wide receiver. Even without Williams Pitt will still have 12 receivers on the roster with only three of them being seniors.

What may hurt the most, however, is that Williams is from perennial Pitt pipeline school Bishop McDevitt. The Harrisburg powerhouse has supplied Pitt with some great players over the years - most notably LeSean McCoy and Aaron Berry - so having some McDevitt players on the roster is always a good thing. Pitt has offers out to two players from Bishop McDevitt: 3-star prospect Brian Lemelle and Zayd Issah.

Whatever the reason for the transfer, we wish Salath well.
