ICYMI, Sheldon Jeter to transfer to Pitt

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Well, Pitt may not have a recruit for their 2014 class, but they will add a player for next fall as it was learned last week that Sheldon Jeter will transfer to Pitt.

It's been a while so you may not remember the Jeter fiasco. But in case you need a bit of a refresher, Jeter wanted to get out of Vanderbilt and reportedly was headed to Pitt. Head coach Kevin Stallings blocked him from coming to Pitt - presumably because he felt there was a measure of tampering (at least, that's one of the more popular beliefs out there). Not happy, Jeter appealed the decision, but it was upheld and he would either have to go somewhere else or pay his own way at Pitt.

Jeter decided to enroll at Polk State for the time being and then will enroll early at Pitt next spring. But here's the kicker - he won't actually play for them and will instead only practice, serving on their scout team per that initial link from the Trib above.

In either case, though, Pitt gets a big boost to their team for next season, despite still not having their first recruit yet. he averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 18 minutes a game last year as a freshman.
