After a year in which he was suspended, former Pitt cornerback Titus Howard was recently dismissed from the football team. Earlier this week, his new destination was chosen as he'll reportedly transition to Slippery Rock, per Jerry DiPaola of the Trib-Review.
The hope was that after sitting out this past season, Howard, only a two-star recruit per Rivals, could be a part of a secondary that needed improving this year under new head coach Pat Narduzzi. But the dismissal ended any hope of that.
The move to Slippery Rock, of course, represents a pretty significant drop in terms of competition since he's going to be suiting up at the D-II level. But that should allow Howard to shine while being able to play right away as a presumed starter. It also allows him, a Clairton native, to stay close to home - all certainly factors in his decision to head there.
