Murphy Plans to Depart CSU and Play for Buffs

Today Matt Stephens of the Coloradoan reported some not so good news for CSU Rams fans; linebacker Jordan Murphy plans on leaving Ft. Collins to go to… wait for it … Boulder.  Ouch.  If the Rammies don’t already feel like the little brothers of CU, this story isn’t helping.

Murphy hails from Castle Rock a community just south of the Denver metro area.  Murphy saw playing time as a true freshman this past season recording four tackles.

The sophomore walked onto the program so the actual impact of the move is likely to be minimal.  The actual reasons behind the transfer are at this point unknown.  A player leaving a program immediately after a transition to a new coach is by no means surprising.  Jim McElwain is the recently named head coach of CSU and might have motivated the transfer by simply not being his predecessor Steve Fairchild.

When and if Murphy becomes a CU Buff, he might find as much if not more playing time.  Coach Jon Embree is trying to build a talented group of linebackers but as of yet, does not have the depth he has been searching for.  According to Rivals, Embree has only one verbal commitment at listed as a linebacker for 2013, and none in this year’s freshman recruiting class.

For college football fans here in Colorado, the war for in-state talent between Ft. Collins and Boulder is going to be very interesting.  Both programs have struggled to stay out of the basement of their respective conferences.  If either CU or CSU can muster up a breakout year, expect the transfers, and the recruits to flock in either direction.
