Mychale Salahuddin Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

Mychale Salahuddin Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

Two days from the opener and some surprising news out of Pitt this afternoon.

Redshirt freshman running back Mychale Salahuddin has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Head coach Pat Narduzzi confirmed this news at his Thursday press conference.

Salahuddin was finally back to being healthy following surgery last season but wasn’t listed on the teams two-deep running back depth chart. Junior A.J. Davis and redshirt Todd Sibley were listed as the top two backs.

“Mutually, Pitt football and Mychale Salahuddin have decided to part ways. We wish Mychale the best of luck wherever he goes. We’ll help him wherever he wants to go,” said Narduzzi.

Another reason for this decision could be the emergence of freshmen running back Vincent Davis, who’s been the talk of Pitt camp.

Today, Narduzzi said that Davis has moved ahead (of Salahuddin) and that he’ll play some this week.

Regardless of the reason, this is a loss as Salahuddin came to Pitt as a highly rated 4-star recruit from H.D. Woodson High School in Washington DC. In three games last season, Salahuddin rushed four times for 37 yards before injuring his knee.

With this news, Pitt is now at the scholarship limit entering the season.

Sometimes these highly rated recruits have certain expectations of becoming relevant before they’re ready to become relevant and when they don’t end up where they think they should be they look for other options instead of working harder. It’s a lack of vision in their mind on the part of the coaching staff instead of a lack… Read more »

Pitt had too many young backs, it was only a matter of time…I wish him the best. I really wanted to see him play.
