Pitt wide receiver Darian Street announces transfer

2 Comments

Freshman wide receiver Darian Street is on the move out of Pittsburgh. Street, a member of Pitt’s Class of 2017, announced his intent to transfer to a new football program with a statement released on Twitter.

“After talking with my family, we feel that it is in my best interest to part ways with the University of Pittsburgh,” Street said in his shared statement. “I’d like to thank [Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi] and [wide receivers coach Kevin Sherman] for giving me an opportunity to play for this university.”

Street did not record any stats this season for the ACC Coastal Division champion Panthers. Where Street goes next remains to be seen, but he will have to sit out one season before being eligible to return to the football field if he transfers to another FBS program. According to his recruiting profile on Rivals, the former three-star prospect chose Pitt over offers from Army, UConn, and Kent State as well as a couple of FCS offers.

Street is the younger brother of former Pitt wide receiver Devin Street, a leading wide receiver for the Panthers from 2011 through 2013.
