Georgia RB favors USF over UCF

After losing out on Peachtree Ridge RB Brandon Davis, the Bulls focus has shifted to another Georgia back, Demetris Murray. He tells USFNation about his visit to both USF and UCF and why he is now leaning toward the Bulls. Read on for the entire story. Only on USFNation.com!

Demetris Murray (5'11, 205) is a name that USFNation members should be very familiar with. We introduced him over a month ago, featured him in a Recruiting Roundup when he was offered and now we are catching up with him after his latest on-campus visit to USF.

"I was there about two weeks ago" says Murray. "I loved it, it was great."

"I toured the facilities and met with some of the coaches. I was being taken around by one of the coordinators when we accidentally bumped into coach Leavitt. It was really cool, he took us into his office and he talked with me and my family for about 45 minutes."

Murray used his spare time during his summer break to visit two schools in Florida that are interested in him, South Florida and Central Florida.

"I went to Orlando after our trip to Tampa."

After seeing both schools and meeting with the coaches, Demetris said that he favored one school over the other.

"I'm leaning toward USF. They both had nice facilities, but USF's were un-real. But the main thing was the way the coaches talked to me. At USF they really stressed academics and life after football. There were also more majors at USF that appealed to me."

With all of his visits for the summer in the rear-view mirror Murray is ready to name a favorite.

"I don't even have a top 5. I narrowed it to 2 teams. My top team is USF and right behind them is Wake Forest."

"Playing in Florida is a dream to me. I want to stay in the South and especially Florida."

Murray told USFNation that his mind is almost made up, but he's going to let it play out a little longer and probably commit in the fall. He plans on visiting both Wake Forest and South Florida and possibly Maryland for his official visits. Until then he will continue working out in preparation for their first game. His team has been invited to play in Canton, Ohio at the Kirk Hirbstreet invitational.

USFNation will catch up with him before his season starts to see if anything changes.
