Running back Rushel Shell, who is transferring from Pitt, will visit UCLA on Friday, a source close to Shell told the Tribune-Review.

Shell requested clearance from Pitt last week to transfer to UCLA, California, Arizona or Arizona State. Pitt cleared him to transfer to UCLA and California but blocked him from Arizona and Arizona State.

Shell, who gained 641 yards as a freshman, was No. 1 on the Pitt depth chart through the first six practice sessions this spring, but he pulled himself from drills March 22 with a leg injury and never returned.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Shell is scheduled to visit the UCLA campus.
