Mooney's Vinopal transferring to Pitt

YOUNGSTOWN

Mooney High graduate Ray Vinopal is transferring from Michigan to Pitt, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

As a true freshman safety last season, Vinopal appeared in 11 games with four starts, making 33 tackles, including 111/2 for loss for the Wolverines, who went 7-6 and lost in the Gator Bowl. Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez was fired after the season.

Vinopal, who did not respond to interview requests, will sit out next season due to NCAA transfer guidelines.
