Chance Murray, 6-1 JR SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Price, is one of the better shooters in the West Coast class of 2013. He's got a compact, quick stroke and improving perimeter ball skills.

I spoke with Murray recently and asked about the schools that are recruiting him.

"UCLA, USC, UNLV, Washington, Arizona, Washington State, Eastern Washington, Stanford, Colorado and Baylor," said Murray.

Murray said a few schools have extended scholarship offers.

"UCLA, USC, UNLV and Eastern Washington have offered," said Murray.

Murray recently took an unofficial visit to UCLA and talked a little about his trip.

"It went pretty good," said Murray. "They offered me a scholarship during the visit. I loved the campus, I have a good relationship with the coaches and I like the school. I will definitely have them in my recruiting process."

Murray doesn't have any other unofficial visits scheduled in the near future. I asked him if there are any schools that he knows he wants to visit officially.

"No, not really," said Murray. "I'm pretty open."

I asked Murray if he has a sense for which schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"UCLA and Washington State," said Murray.

Murray said he has some criteria in mind for picking a school.

"The academics, how the system fits me, how I get along with the coaches and playing time," said Murray.

Murray doesn't have a time frame in mind for making his choice.

"Whenever I feel comfortable, then I will decide," said Murray.

I asked him if location is an issue.

"No, the location doesn't matter, I will go anywhere," said Murray.

Murray said he will be at USC's camp on Friday and then UCLA's camp on Saturday and Sunday.
