San Clemente (Calif.) offensive tackle Kevin Murphy (6-7, 265), was one of the official visitors to The Farm when the Cardinal hosted Oregon a week ago, and Murphy said his trip to Palo Alto went well.
"It was a good trip," said Murphy. "They didn't really talk much about an offer, but said they were watching some more of my games and would let me know. I have the academics though."
Murphy, whose lone offer is from Idaho State, said that Stanford was recruiting him as an offensive tackle, and after spending much of the spring working out as a tight end at the various camps and combines he attended, most schools see him playing along the offensive line.
On his trip, Murphy said he was hosted by a handful of Cardinal players, with freshman lineman Tyler Mabry, who grew up just south of Murphy in San Diego, his player host. Murphy also got to know several of the other prospects in on their official visit.
"There were seven of us on our official visit. Tyler Mabry was my host. He's a cool guy," said Murphy.
Following his trip to Stanford, he left favoring the Cardinal, but also said that Washington State is a school that has been communicating with him and could be the recipient of his next official visit.
"I've talked with Coach Yarno at Washington State and we're probably going schedule a trip for after the season, but there is nothing scheduled yet," said Murphy.
In the meantime, Murphy said his focus was on the Tritons' season.
"I'm probably going to wait until the end of the season, and then worry about recruiting after its over," said Murphy.
Aside from Stanford, Idaho State and Washington State, Murphy said that most of the Ivy League schools have been recruiting him, Harvard and Princeton the most, as well as Colorado State and Boise State.
But he said that if offers were to come from Stanford and Washington State, those two would be his focus.
Academically, Murphy has a 4.3 GPA and scored an 1850 on the SAT.
