Friendly High (Fort Washington, Md.) cornerback Alameen Murphy was one of the more impressive defensive backs at the Nike Football Training Camp in Ashubrn, Va.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Murphy is attracting a lot of on the recruiting trail and now holds offers from Vanderbilt, Stanford, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest
Murphy talked about his offer from Wake Forest.
"I was really excited," Murphy said. "I like their defensive coordinator and they told me a lot of good stuff about their school, so I am excited to learn a little more about them."
One school Murphy has been in touch with for a while now is Maryland and he recently stopped by campus to check out the Terps spring game.
"I was there with my sister, we were all there so it was kind of like a family thing and I brought a bunch of my teammates too it was nice," said Murphy, whose sister is a freshman at Maryland. "I thought it was a great game, I noticed they played really fast so it was good to just being able to see the speed of the college game and the level they play."
After the game Murphy got a chance to catch up with Maryland coaches, Mike Locksley and Brian Stewart.
"Coach Locksley said he was going to keep in touch with me and he was going to evaluate my film," Murphy said. " I think they still want to see me run more."
So could Murphy be closing in on an offer from his hometown team?
"Looking at my film Locksley said he sees I'm good but he wants to see just a little bit more," Murphy said. "He wants to see how fast I can run and he wants to see me run a 40."
As far as visits are concerned Murphy has already visited North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Penn State and Maryland and will be making a trip out to the west coast to visit Stanford on June 17-21. He also hopes to get to Georgia Tech and get back to Vanderbilt sometime during the summer.
