Rising junior Nathan Murray is one of the top 2017 prospects in Kentucky. The Bell County lineman talked with Scout.com about his recruitment.

Nathan Murray plans to make the rounds this summer at various camps. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound tackle shared his plans for the summer.

"I like going to camps. This gives me a chance to work with different coaches and to compete against great athletes," Murray said. I plan on attending Kentucky, Louisville, Alabama, Tennessee and Florida State."

Two of those schools are among the programs showing the most interest in Murray at this stage.

"I've received interest from several schools with Kentucky and Florida State showing the most interest. I went to the spring game at Kentucky my freshman and sophomore years. I have talked to (Kentucky offensive line coach) John Schlarman and (Kentucky offensive coordinator) Neal Brown," he continued.

Murray has also been in touch with the Wildcats recently as they came to his high school to see him.

"I talked with Neal Brown at the spring game. I also talked to John Schlarman and (Head Coach) Mark Stoops. John Schlarman was also at my school a few weeks ago," he continued.

Along with his obvious ample size, Murray has other parts of his game that he views as assets as he prepares for his junior season of football.

"As an offensive tackle one of my strengths is my size. That's a big help at my position. I've also played the same position since second grade, so I feel like I am very knowledgeable at the position. Several coaches have also told me I have great footwork for a guy my size. I'm a hard worker. If I'm not working with my team, I'm always doing something to improve my game like working out or attending camps," Murray said.
