Former Pitt Running Back Todd Sibley Jr. Commits to Albany

Published

on

Since emerging in his sophomore season as a depth option for Pitt at running back, Todd Sibley Jr.’s playing time steadily declined over the past few seasons.

With a trio of running backs in Israel Abanikanda, Vincent Davis and Rodney Hammond Jr. all garnering extended playing time next season, the writing was on the wall for Sibley and he decided to enter the transfer portal at the end of December.

Sibley has officially found a new home, announcing Monday via Twitter that he’s committed to Albany for his final season of eligibility.

“I don’t even know where to start.. I’ve been playing ball since I was 6 years old and I never thought it would take me this far in life. It’s been a crazy journey so far to say the least. I always felt like I’ve had more downs than ups throughout my career but I know it’s for a reason. To all my family at Pitt, I swear I love y’all to death! Everyone there has helped me in someway, shape, or form. But it’s time for me to go chase my own individual goals and dreams. Some of you know I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for almost 3 years now and it’s finally here… I’ve been blessed with one more year of eligibility and I plan on taking full advantage of it,” Sibley wrote in a Twitter post.

Sibley committed to Pitt as a four-star out of Archbishop Hoban in Akron, Ohio as part of the class of 2017. In 16 career games at Pitt, he rushed for 321 yards and a touchdown on 69 carries. As a sophomore in 2018, he carried the ball 50 times for 249 yards and caught two passes for an additional 18 yards.

With former Albany star Karl Mofor off to the CFL Draft, Sibley could make an impact immediately on a team looking for his replacement.

However, Sibley will always be a Pitt Panther, having earned a degree in communications and a second in social work during his time in Pittsburgh.

I guess he just wants to play, even if it’s a D-2 or 3 school.
So from Ohio State to Pitt to Albany. Next it will be CCAC.

I give the kid credit for never whining or behaving like a child. He was there for his team right up until the time it was pretty much cemented that playing time wouldn’t be a realistic option. Can’t ask for much more from an athlete.
