Is Murray still solid after visit to So Miss?

Rumors are swirling that Bulls commit Demetrius Murray may be looking at other options after his visit to So. Miss. last weekend. He talks to USFNation about that and more. Read on for the entire story.

Last weekend running back Demetrius Murray, from Buford Georgia, took a surprise visit to Southern Mississippi and was quoted as saying that the visit might give him something to think about.

Last night USFNation asked him about those quotes and the reasoning for the visit.

"I'm still committed to USF." Said the 5-11, 205 pound running back.

"They are still my number one school. I'm not considering Southern Miss at all. I was there to help one of our receivers get an offer. He's been overlooked and I was trying to get his name out there."

Murray made it clear that there will be no "signing day surprise". He said his mind is made up and there will be no more visits.

"I'm done. I'm not going anywhere. It's good to be done."

There were a few lessons Murray says he'll take from the recruiting process.

"I did a lot of growing up. You have to learn to be professional."

Now that it's over for Murray he said his focus is on staying in shape and finishing the school year.

"Right now I've got all A's & B's." Said Murray who is already fully qualified.

Two weeks ago Demetrius took his official visit to Tampa and says it was the last thing he needed to see to make sure he made the right choice.

"I wanted to go down and meet the players and the coaches. It all went really, really good."

"I had fun, got along with everyone and the weather was perfect."

His host for the weekend was Dontavia Bogan. The two went around town and hungout at Bogan's place on Saturday.

"I went down with my family and they loved it also. It was a perfect 10."

Murray is fully qualified and will sign his LOI with South Florida at his school on signing day.
