Murray Stands Tall Among 2016 Prospects

One of the state of Arkansas' top 2016 prospects is Bryant junior defensive lineman Cameron Murray (6-4, 280), who was on hand Thursday for the Razorbacks' Elite Camp and hopes his performance results in a scholarship offer soon.

With only three defensive lineman at Arkansas' Elite Camp on Thursday, it was hard not to notice Bryant junior-to-be Cameron Murray.

But Murray (6-2, 280) would have likely stood out if there had been 20 defensive linemen going through drills with Razorback D-line coach Rory Segrest.

It was clear to see that Murray has a good mix of size, speed and football IQ.

"My strong points are basically just getting off blocks, staying low and defeating the double team," Murray said. "I know I can get better and I'm working hard to do that."

Murray's family has some Arkansas history and he likes what he has seen and heard from second-year Razorback head coach Bret Bielema and his staff.

"I grew up liking Arkansas because my dad (Gerald) and mom (Andrea) went to school here," Murray said. "I like the new staff. They are really building."

Murray gets a chance to go against another D-I prospect in practice in Bryant senior-to-be offensive lineman Cameron Davis, the son of former Razorback offensive lineman Isaac Davis.

"We have been going against each other and he wins some and I win some," Murray said. "It is like 50-50. It's great competition and helps us both."

Murray already has garnered an offer from Arkansas State and thinks a couple more could be coming soon.

"I've got the ASU offer and I think Memphis is really interested," Murray said. "Arkansas seems to be very interested as well."

He is hitting the summer camp circuit to put himself in the best possible position to land some offers.

"It is going good for me," Murray said. "I have already been to the A-State camp, went to Memphis, here at Arkansas and later on in July I am going to Ole Miss and Auburn."
