Wide receiver Darian Street announced on Twitter on Friday that he intends to transfer from the University of Pittsburgh.
Street, a 6-foot-1 redshirt freshman from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, played in just one game with the Panthers in 2018 after redshirting in 2017. He is the younger brother of former Pitt and NFL receiver Devin Street.
“After talking with my family, we feel that it is in my best interest to part ways with the University of Pittsburgh,” he wrote.

He was seemingly passed on Pitt’s depth chart at wide receiver by true freshmen Shocky Jacques-Louis and V’Lique Carter this season. Both players received extensive playing time and went beyond the four games permitted for a redshirt player, making them sophomores in 2019.
Street will have to sit out a year or apply for a waiver if he transfers to another FBS school. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining, but will only be able to use two if he does not get a waiver. Transfers to the FCS or junior college level do not require waiting a year for eligibility.
The Panthers still seem to have plenty of depth at wide receiver. Street will join lone senior Rafael Araujo-Lopes as departures, but Pitt already has two commitments in the Class of 2019 in Aliquippa’s Will Gipson and Jared Wayne from Canada.
