Pac-12 battle for Murray

A handful of Pac-12 schools are fighting for 2013 shooting guard Chance Murray. Which schools are recruiting him the hardest?

One of the more highly recruited guards out west in 2013 is 6-foot-3, 180-pound Los Angeles Price shooting guard Chance Murray.

Schools haven't been shy about recruiting Murray early into his junior year and right now he's hearing from several high major programs.

"I still have Arizona State, California, Washington, Colorado, Stanford, Oklahoma, UCLA and USC," Murray said.

Earlier in the fall, Murray took an unofficial visit to Arizona State, which he enjoyed.

"ASU was great," he said. "They showed me around and I got the chance to go to a football game there. I loved the facilities, I loved the coaches and I have a pretty good relationship with them. Overall it was a good trip. The staff is great, we talk a lot. I keep up with them a lot."

When asked who else was recruiting him hard, Murray mentioned California and Washington.

"I took a visit to Cal and I like the way they let their guards play," he said. "I also like how they set a lot of ball screens. Cal is a great school overall. They have very good academics and their basketball team is ranked in the top 25. I fell in love with that visit as well.

"With Washington, Coach (Lorenzo) Romar is a great coach of course. He lets his guards play and I like how they run their system. I'm trying to set up a visit there now."

Murray says that he has no timetable on when he'll make a decision.

"Whenever I feel comfortable with my decision that's when I'll make it," he said.
