JUCO Guard Ryan Murphy Officially Signs with Pitt

JUCO Guard Ryan Murphy Officially Signs with Pitt

Junior college shooting guard Ryan Murphy has officially signed a grant-in-aid with Pitt, making him the third member of Jeff Capel’s 2019 recruiting class to put pen to paper and join the Panthers.

Murphy (6-foot-2, 170 pounds), comes to the Panthers from New Mexico Junior College, where he spent the 2018-19 season. Before that, Murphy spent two year at UNC Charlotte after graduating from Calabasas (Calif.) High School.

“Ryan is a seasoned player with a strong competitive spirit,” Capel said in a press release. “He is an outstanding shooter with deep range and will be an excellent floor spacer in our offense. He has the skill set and intangibles to be a significant contributor for us. We are excited to add another tough-minded and experienced player to our program.”

At Charlotte, Murphy went 32 of 80 (40%) from 3-point range in 2017-18 after redshirting as a true freshman, and Pitt should be able to expect him to replace some of the long-range production lost with the graduation of Jared Wilson-Frame.

He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Panthers.

Murphy joins guard Gerald Drumgoole and wing Justin Champagnie as players to sign in advance of the 2019-20 season. Pitt also holds a verbal commitment from forward Karim Coulibaly (Scotland Campus Sports).
