It's looking increasing like Kerry Murphy will find a home in the Big East in the next few years. According to Gentry Estes at AL.com, Murphy hasn't yet qualified
. The former Hoover High star has battled eligibility issues for the last couple of years, and it seems his time at Hargrave hasn't yet gotten him to the point of qualification.
According to Hargrave's site
(by way of Estes), Murphy has been admitted to the University. But the NCAA Clearinghouse still has to speak - and that's likely to be rough. Murphy's grades at Hoover weren't great, and they may have been inflated.
Murphy could have helped at defensive tackle, where Bama isn't exactly deep.
