The 6’8” guard from Durham, NC averaged 13.7 points per game pacing the Owls last season. He also added 5.5. boards and shot 43.4% from the floor, including 36.8% from behind the arc.
Murphy would sit out a year and return to college basketball for two years beginning with the 2021-22 season.
Villanova also took a transfer from Rice in 2012, when Dylan Ennis came to the Main Line from the Houston school.
