Rutgers and New Mexico pick up ACC transfers
March 7th, 2008 5:45PM



Rutgers and New Mexico have landed ACC players Yannick Salmon and David Murphy, respectively, in moves that should bolster both programs.

Salmon played 18 games for Maryland in 2007 after being recruited out of Westbury (N.Y.) High School. He played on Jamaica's under-17 national team in 2007 and was recently called into a U-20 camp organized by former England great John Barnes.

Salmon is part of a quartet of transfers who will add considerable experience to the Scarlet Knights.

Brazilian Guilherme Dantas led Division II Alabama-Huntsville in scoring for two consecutive seasons and was a two-time first team All-Gulf South Conference selection. Josh Carroll played two seasons at Loyola Marymount, while Taha Mostafa comes to the Banks as a junior and his experience on the international level should prove valuable for the Scarlet Knights during the 2008 season. Egyptian Taha Mostafa will enter Rutgers as a junior.

Murphy, who joins the Lobos from Wake Forest, starred on the Dallas Texans team that won three straight national youth championships and won the 2007 Dallas Cup Super Group, He red-shirted in 2006 and saw action in six games in 2007 when the Demon Deacons won the NCAA Division I title.

"David is a natural leader. He captained the most successful youth club team in this country's history," said UNM coach Jeremy Fishbein. "We feel UNM is the perfect fit for David and he is going to blossom as a leader and player here."
