Pitt LB Deaysean Rippy expected to join Colorado

Colorado is close to finalizing paperwork for Pitt linebacker Deaysean Rippy to enter school as a transfer with 2014 eligibility, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. Rippy should join the Buffs barring an unforseen development, the source said, but the move is not yet done.

Rippy, a four-star recruit out of the 2012 recruiting class, redshirted as a freshman and was not on the Panthers' two-deep at the conclusion of spring practices. The source says the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Rippy is believed to be a relative of Doug Rippy, a four-year Buffs linebacker with CU who was released by the Broncos in May.

Colorado is looking for an infusion of linebacker athleticism as coach Mike MacIntyre works to upgrade the Buffs' defense.
