The Kevin Stallings era at Pittsburgh has taken another hit, both on the court and in the court of public opinion, after the Panthers finished with a 16-17 record in Stallings' debut season.

Cameron Johnson, a 6-8 guard who was the team's third-leading scorer at 11.9 points per game last season, announced in April his decision to transfer from the university. He has since become one of the most sought-after transfers on the market due to both his offensive production and his rare status as a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining, meaning he could play immediately next season, as well as the season after that.

Johnson has reportedly considered transferring to Arizona, Kentucky, Ohio State, Oregon, TCU and UCLA, according to ESPN's Jeff Borzello. North Carolina has since been added to Johnson's list, according to Inside Carolina, but Pittsburgh is putting roadblocks in place seemingly to dissuade him from transferring within the ACC.
