Post-Visit Report Armando Murillo

Physical and quick cornerbacks are always in demand, and Eastern Arizona Junior College Armando Murillo certainly fits the bill. Devils Digest talked to the four-star prospect after his trip to Tempe.

"It was a good visit," said Armando Murillo who was hosted by fellow defensive backs Chris Baloney and Jeremy Payton. "It was a real fun weekend. I really enjoyed hanging out with the players. They are really good guys. I've been there at ASU during a camp, but I got to see a lot more stuff this time, like the tour of the campus. I know much more about the school now than I did before."

The 6-0 190 Murillo, who hails from Tampa (Fla.) has been clocked running the 40-yard dash at a 4.4, and is regarded as someone who definitely has the skills to play on Sundays. "I'm fast, but I need to work more on my technique," he said. "I do a good job breaking on the ball."

The cornerback, who's being recruited by Coach Wrenn, was offered a scholarship by the Sun Devils last spring. "Nebraska and West Virginia are the only other schools I'm considering right now," he commented. "I already visited Nebraska, and I'm gonna visit West Virginia the first week of December."

Murillo is a mid-year transfer, who will have two years to play two, and is expected to naturally make his decision shortly after his West Virginia visit and in time for the December 20th mid-year signing day. "I'm looking for a school where I can play early," he noted. "It doesn't matter to me if I go to a school closer to my JC or not."
