Defensive tackle Cameron Murray of Bryant, Ark., was the lone official visitor for Oklahoma State this weekend and while he had a great visit he hinted he needed a little time to talk it over and think about it when he got back home. Murray is 6-3, 280 pounds and the emphasis on needing time for the three-star defensive tackle should have been on little because by the end of Sunday evening he had committed to the Cowboys.
"It went really well," Murray said about the visit as he was in the car heading home on Sunday afternoon. "Most of the time I was with defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements and with Mike Groce (assistant recruiting coordinator). My player host was Taaj (Bakari). Most everything was good. Really it was all good, the facilities, the players, the atmosphere. Everything was good."
Asked how he left Stillwater on Sunday and talking with head coach Mike Gundy, he said, "I'm really considering Oklahoma State. I need to go home and talk to my family, but I am really considering Oklahoma State."
Later on Sunday evening came this entry on his Twitter account @camcam700: "First off I just want to thank God for the many opportunities he has blessed me with. Also, I want to thank all of the coaches that have invested their time in me throughout the recruiting process. Also I want to thank my high school coaches and teammates who have helped (me) to become the guy that I am today. Finally I would like to thank my family, for their continuous love and support throughout this entire journey, With that being said, I would like to say I am officially committed to Oklahoma State University. #gopokes."
Murray had 3.0 sacks and 11.0 tackles for loss this season for 9-3 Bryant also deflected four passes, forced a fumble, and blocked a punt. He confirmed for us that he is 6-3, 280 pounds as his height and weight are listed differently in different places.
Oklahoma State has a long history of good defensive linemen coming from Arkansas including NFL All-Pros Leslie O'Neal and more recently Kevin Williams.
Murray had previously visited Louisiana Tech and was scheduled to visit Kansas this next weekend and also Arizona, but it is believed that those visits have been cancelled.
