Ohio State LB Dorian Bell Transferring To Pittsburgh?

WBNS is reporting Wednesday morning that Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel was unaware of linebacker Dorian Bell’s intent to transfer to Pittsburgh.

Bell had been suspended by the school for the entire 2011 season following what is being suspected to be a repeat offense in a violation of team rules. Bell was originally suspended for three games that caused him to miss the Sugar Bowl at the end of last season. A transfer to Pittsburgh would require Bell to sit out the entire 2011 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

The turbulent, disappointing offseason for The Ohio State University football team is not over just yet. In another blow to the Buckeyes, linebacker Dorian Bell has been suspended for the entirety of the 2011 season.

Bell’s suspension is not linked with the suspensions of five premiere players, including Terrelle Pryor, Devier Posey, and Dan Herron. Bell’s infraction is not connected to the lies of Coach Jim Tressel. Bell, who missed the 2011 Sugar Bowl as part of a 2-game suspension, will sit out all of 2011 for violating a team rule multiple times.

Bell’s suspension will continue to provide trouble to the OSU depth chart.
