Four-Star WR Talks Recruiting

On of the top wide receivers in the country has been considering Florida State for sometime and he even attended the summer football camp in Tallahassee. However, lately the Tampa Middleton standout has been cooling on the Seminoles. Has that changed?


"I got visits set up to Tennessee, Florida, Florida State South Carolina and hopefully South Florida also," four-star wide receiver O.J. Murdock said. "The first week we get back will be Florida. The Second week will be South Carolina. The third week will be South Florida, Tennessee. The last visit will go to Tennessee."

Are there any teams standing out?

"Florida and Tennessee," he said. "I love Florida. Tennessee and South Carolina are right there now also."

In December Murdock was suppose to visit Miami but because of a scheduling conflict, he won't officially visit the Canes.

"They changed my visit date and I don't have anymore room to visit them in January," he said.

Murdock knows what he's looking for in a school. What are the factors?

"The coaching stability, the offenses they run, the quarterback situation and the depth chart will all be important things to consider," he said.

The Middleton senior is keeping a close eye on the young quarterbacks.

"Tennessee has Brent Schaeffer," he said. "Florida has Chris Leak and Josh Portis. I've talked to Portis who is from California. He's graduating early from high school."

This past week while practicing for the Florida/California All-Star game, Murdock has went up against some of Team Florida's top defensive backs. Who‘s the toughest?

"I would have to say Dee Morley," he said. "We got real close over the summer. He's the best defensive back on our team."

Murdock is excellent student who is on track to qualify academically.
