04:04 PM ET 06.24 | Rushel Shell's confusing status took a turn for the more confusing Monday afternoon, as the former Pitt player who has now decided not to transfer to UCLA will in fact not be returning to Pitt, putting his future football career in jeopardy.

Paul Chryst's staff apparently never considered the return of Shell, who reneged on his decision to go to UCLA when he decided he wanted to be closer to his family, which lives in western Pennsylvania. The former five-star running back had 641 yards in his true freshman year with the Panthers, but it's now unclear when and where he plans to play football again.

Kid needs time off to grow up-- may be getting too much advice from too many sources; sad.

Not only is Shell rumored to be lazy when it comes to football prep (training,practice), it was also rumored that he was not the most popular fellow to his teammates....plus he has a 10 cent head. The coaching staff gave him lots of rope before he walked off the team during spring practice...no way they could welcome him back now.

The kid is a midget half pint mixed up with 2 kids poor grades and a bad attitude. Flush him and let him play for Edinboro.

Why? He SHOULD go to West Virginia. Closer to home than UCLA, WVU only recruits for offense, and the HC at WVU is an arrogant jackass, just like this kid. Perfect fit!

Shell just felt he was entitled to do what he pleased brought on by his past coaches and recruiters but such is life. Might have to go to Akron or Robert Morris to jump start his career.
