Vidal Links

Thursday, January 8, 2009

Former USC wide receiver Vidal Hazleton decided in December to transfer and has been looking at a variety of options. He was first quoted as saying that Rutgers and Missouri were his top two choices. Now, his father Dexter remarks: "I think (Missouri and Rutgers) are out..."

Hazelton is reportedly now deciding whether to transfer to a D-1AA (Delaware is mentioned as a possibility -- his good buddy Pat Devlin will be playing there) to be able to play immediately, or to another D-1A school (Pitt and Syracuse are mentioned as options -- he would have to sit out one year in order to play).

Chas from Pitt Blather is not feeling optimistic about Hazelton coming to Pittsburgh. That being said, Hazelton was highly recruited coming out of high school and had a tremendous sophomore year for the Trojans, garnering 50 grabs and four touchdowns. It will certainly be interesting to see where he lands, whether it's a Big East school or elsewhere.
