The transformation of the 2017-18 Pitt basketball continued today with the news of a transfer.
Sophomore guard Crisshawn Clark announced on Twitter his plans of transferring from Pitt. Clark missed the entire 2016-17 season after suffering a knee injury days before the season opener.
I want to say thank you so much to The University of Pittsburgh for this opportunity!! I will be transferring to continue my career. pic.twitter.com/dqYfHCgLqq

Considering this is Clark’s second knee injury and he wasn’t recruited by Kevin Stallings, the news today isn’t a complete surprise.
