Lexington Bryan Station guard Terrance Clayton-Murphy is hoping that he'll be able to convert an email sent by the Western Kentucky basketball staff into greater things.
The 6-foot-2 combo guard received an email from WKU inviting him to the program's upcoming camp for the opportunity to display his abilities in front of head coach Rick Stansbury and his staff.
"I received an email from Coach Cross, and he expressed his interest in me being a future Hilltopper," Clayton-Murphy told WKU Insider. "Then he invited me to visit the campus and to participate in WKU's elite basketball camp to play in front of the rest of the coaching staff."
The increased interest from the in-state school that is quickly on the rise to regain its traditional prowess quickly grabbed his attention.
"I love it," he said. :My dream has always been to become a Division 1 basketball player. Also WKU is close to home so that's even better."
As a junior, Clayton-Murphy poured in 20 points per game and grabbed 5.3 rebounds. He was also one of the Bluegrass State's top free-throw shooters, connecting on 84.5 percent of his attempts.
"I am a unselfish player, but if need be I can take over the game," he said. "I'm more of a slasher to the basket and finish at the rim, or a dribble pull up right inside the arch."
In addition to WKU, Clayton-Murphy is also drawing interest from Toledo, Central Michigan and a host of Division II and Division III programs.
The Hilltoppers highly-rated recruiting class already includes a pair in-state stars in Taveion Hollingsworth and Jake Ohmer. Additionally, junior college transfer Jordan Brangers is also a Kentucky product.
