Defensive tackle Lloyd Murray Jr. checks in at 6-foot-1, 320-pounds from Wichita Falls (Texas) Hirschi High School.
“I really loved the Spring Game,” Murray said. “The guys on both sides of the ball competed hard, and it was a very fun game to watch. I got to talk to Coach Giles more and expand our relationship more. The environment is very very crazy; UT fans love their Longhorns. I was walking on campus, and random people would come up to me and say "Hey! Are you Lloyd Murray?" It's a blessing that people on campus already know me. I love UT man. UT is one big family I would love to be a part of. I went with my dad and brothers. We loved it.”
Which coach did Murray speak with the most this weekend?
“Really, it was Coach Giles,” Murray said. “I watched their D-Line get after it out there and compete. He told me that "This will be you in 2 more years, Lloyd." I really love and respect Coach Giles. He's a great guy. He's going to come up and see me next week. The facility upgrades are crazy cool and are going to be nice. I see how the lockers are going to be. That is crazy how much money they spend on just the lockers. But yeah, the facilities at UT are one of a kind.”
What was the best part of this visit for Murray?
“Favorite part overall? Would have to be whenever somebody scores they blow that big cannon, and it makes a huge loud noise. I think I lost some hearing. But yeah, UT is a very special place to be. The environment, the fans, the coaches, the players, the people overall, they all love you like one big family. Texas is definitely a top school for me.”
