According to multiple reports, redshirt sophomore Devilbacker Ismael Murphy-Richardson has been dismissed from the ASU football team because of his arrest for credit card fraud.

The story was first reported by Devils Digest and quickly confirmed by SunDevilSource and Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic.

According to reports, this arrest is connected to the Deonte Reynolds and Jamye Otomewo case in which both players were kicked off the team last month for being caught with stolen credit cards.

Murphy-Richardson represents the biggest loss of the three from a football perspective. As a redshirt freshman, he collected 15 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks in 2015. He was projected to start or at least compete for the starting Devilbacker role in 2016 with the graduation of Antonio Longino.

We will update this story if more facts become available.
