Last season Demetrius Murray ran for 1,090 yards and led Gwinett County in TD's with 20 as a junior. He was a hot prospect this spring picking up early offers from Indiana, South Florida, Maryland, Wake Forest, Tulane and Ole Miss.
Murray is a mix of size and speed, at 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds he can pound it between the tackles and then break it wide open with his 4.5 speed. Last month USFNation reported that Murray made a visit to the USF campus, a visit that may have sealed his decision. Here is what he had to say about the trip.
"I loved my visit, I rate it a perfect 10."
He made his decision this weekend.
"I called coach Gregory and told him I was ready." Adding, "I liked everything about USF, it has so much to offer."
One of his main reasons for choosing USF was the family atmosphere.
"The coaches are great, the facility and the town. I like everything."
Murray says ever since his visit he has had the Bulls on his mind.
"When I was there I was blown away by the coaches and the facilities. But the main thing was that the coaches stressed to me academics and life after football."
With his mind made up, Murray says his only visit will be to USF. As of now no date is set.
Check back with us later tonight for full coverage of the opening of summer practice. pictures, video and more!
