It's not yet a done done deal, but all signs are pointing to Sheldon Jeter transferring to Pitt. Jeter, a 6'7" forward, is a local player from Beaver Falls who was at Vanderbilt. He averaged a little more than five points and three rebounds per game this year. Out of high school, he was a three-star recruit and ranked as Rivals' No. 150 player in the nation.

SB Nation's Vanderbilt blog Anchor of Gold calls the loss a big blow. According to his coach, he wanted to be closer to home. Jeter himself cited personal issues.

The closer to home statement seems to indicate that the Panthers would be in the mix. All the talk is about Jeter coming to Pitt, but he says his mind's not made up yet:

I wouldn't take that as a sign that he's not coming to Pitt. I'm not saying his mind is set on Pitt, only that if it is, he may not want to come out and say it.

Jeter initially chose Vandy over Penn State, South Carolina, and Wisconsin, but Pitt didn't offer him. There's no question that he could help Pitt's depth issue. He won't be able to play this year after sitting out, but with the losses of Lamar Patterson, J.J. Moore, and Talib Zanna, Pitt will have plenty of opportunities at forward next season. Jeter would have three years of eligibility left.

More on this as it develops.
