Lloyd Carrington will leave Pitt to join Todd Graham at Arizona State.
Former Pitt cornerback Lloyd Carrington announced recently that he was transferring from the school. Today, his destination was learned - Carrington will join former Pitt head coach Todd Graham at Arizona State and have three years of eligibility left.
That's a bit of a shock considering the abrupt and messy departure Graham had from Pitt. But apparently, not all of the team's players held the same kind of animosity that some did.
Carrington leaves a somewhat crowded secondary. Graham and new head coach Paul Chryst have built that position up and turned it into one of depth. It's understandable that Carrington would transfer with so many cornerbacks in line for potential playing time in the future.
Pitt, meanwhile, has struggled mightily on the field this season. The team dropped their opener to Youngstown State and then was crushed in a game with Big East foe Cincinnati on Thursday.
