                      === Shell denied return to Pitt ===
 
 Pittsburgh,  PA  (Sports Network)  - Running back  Rushel Shell, who announced
 his  intention to transfer from Pitt to UCLA, has been denied in his effort to
 return to the Panthers.
 
 The  Post-Gazette  on Monday quoted  a source close  to the team, who revealed
 that Pitt coaches have shot down any chance of reinstating the Pittsburgh-area
 native.
 
 Shell  rushed for 641 yards and four touchdowns during his successful freshman
 campaign  in 2012,  but announced in April  that he wanted to leave school and
 head to the west coast.
 
 The  Panthers  blocked his  attempts to  transfer to  both Arizona and Arizona
 State,  according to  the  paper, after  giving Shell  time  away from  spring
 practices.
 
 Shell  set  state rushing  records by  racking up 9,078  total yards over four
 years at Hopewell High School in Aliquippa.
