Shakir Soto, James Folston played together at Pitt. Now, they're teammates in the USFL

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Shakir Soto’s entry to the United States Football League included his old Pitt teammate, James Folston, pretty much from the get-go. Before being selected in February, Soto had a conversation with New Orleans Breakers defensive line coach Paul Spicer during the pre-draft process. They talked about where Soto, a pass-rusher in his time at Pitt from 2013-16, might fit on the Breakers’ front. Spicer also brought up Folston, a defensive end with the Panthers from 2014-18.
