While we still don’t know where it is Rushel Shell will continue his playing career, we do know (reportedly) where it won’t be.
According to Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com, the former Pittsburgh running back will choose between Kentucky and West Virginia as his next transfer destination. Shell will decide after making visits to both schools.
It had previously been reported that Shell was considering Ohio State along with those two schools, and would make a decision after visiting all three. Why the Buckeyes are no longer an option is unclear.
Shell left the Panthers earlier this year and was headed for UCLA before deciding he wanted to stay closer to his twin daughters. While Shell wanted to return to Pitt, that school never seriously considered allowing the prodigal back to come back to his football home.
Regardless of where Shell ultimately land, he’ll be forced to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
