Former Wisconsin Running Back Zach Brown Transfers to Pittsburgh

Todd Graham has landed another transfer (this one makes six). Zach Brown, a running back who played at Wisconsin, decided to transfer to Pittsburgh after seeing himself fourth on the Baders' depth chart after the Spring. Brown will be available immediately and is transferring using the same loophole that allowed Jeremiah Masoli to enroll at Ole Miss last season. The SEC has decided to end the practice of allowing student-athletes who have graduated at one school with a year of eligibility remaining to transfer to another school to enroll in a graduate program that the student-athletes' previous school doesn't have.

Brown's best season at Wisconsin was his Freshman season in 2007 when he rushed for 568 yards and five touchdowns on 119 carries. Brown is listed at 5-10, 220 lbs. and should help the depth at the running back position for the Panthers. In Todd Graham's offense, starting running back Ray Graham will be asked to handle the ball an awful lot and any breathers he can get will help him finish the season strong. Brown will be a change of pace as he doesn't have the change of direction ability of Graham. Expect straight north and south running with plenty of leg drive from Brown. I'm really interested to see how the carries will be allocated now that Graham has another running back with experience on the roster.
