In one of the biggest non-shockers in history, guard Isaiah Epps will not continue his playing career at Pitt and will instead transfer to a school closer to home. This currently leaves Pitt with one more scholarship to give. Epps, a native of Plainfield, NJ, redshirted his first season, then averaged 5.4 minutes a game this season as a redshirt freshman.
One possible replacement could be Central Michigan transfer Trey Zeigler, formerly a top 30 prospect who chose to play for Central Michigan because his father, former Pitt assistant Ernie Ziegler, was the head coach. Zeigler got fired a few weeks ago and now his son is looking to transfer. The 6'5" SG/SF has shot poorly in his first two seasons but he is also a player of elite skills. In fact, he has already visited Duke.
