Pittsburgh (KDKA)- The Pitt Panthers depth on defense took a hit today with the announcement of an ineligible player.
Sophomore outside linebacker Bryan Murphy has been declared academically ineligible for the 2011 season.
Murphy is expected to take a redshirt this year. He played in six games last season as a reserve defensive end and was expected to back up starter Brandon Lindsey.
Murphy was a highly ranked 4-star recruit from Don Bosco Prep.
