TCU visit 'eye-opening' for '16 LB

Richmond (TX) Foster 2016 linebacker Sidney Murray was impressed with his visit to TCU last weekend.

TCU hosted a ton of prospects last Saturday when the Frogs dismantled Oklahoma State by a score of 42-9.

Among the talented group of prospects was a player that is on the rise in recruiting circles; Richmond (TX) Foster 2016 linebacker Sidney Murray.

The 6-foot-2, 227-pounder has picked up interest from several programs in recent months, including TCU. Among the others showing interest is Houston, Texas Tech, Texas State, Nebraska and Texas A&M.

Murray’s visit to TCU was the first for him and he came away very impressed with what he saw.

“It was great; I loved it,” he said. “I like the coaches and the rest of the football staff. I liked the facilities and the players talked to you.”

In addition to what he liked from the facilities and coaches, the Frogs’ performance on the field also impressed Murray.

“I think they executed well; they looked good,” Murray said of the Frogs’ win. “They made me like them even more. I didn’t realize TCU had that much power and athletes on their team.”

Overall, the visit made a big enough impression to completely change Murray’s thoughts on TCU; admitting that he didn’t have much interest in the Frogs’ before the visit.

“At first I was a really big A&M fan and I was really focused on going there. Then, I went to TCU and they really changed my eyes,” he said. “I really like TCU now.”

Although the Frogs haven’t discussed an offer, Murray knows where he stands with the staff as far as his recruitment goes.

“The last time TCU saw me play defense was my freshman year and then I was at a private school and last year at my other school they had me playing offense,” he said. “This is my first year back to playing defense. They want to see me at a camp so they can see my speed and me working drills.”

Murray says he may visit Texas Tech for a game this season but is unsure of the date. As for TCU, he says the coaches would like him to attend another game if he’s able to.

Murray didn’t hesitate when asked if that’s something he plans to do.

“Most definitely,” Murray finished.
