Murphy Excited About Wisconsin

While the state of Arizona is not as big of a priority as it was a season ago, Wisconsin will still dabble in the Southwest, which is evident by its offer to Scottsdale (AZ) Saguaro junior cornerback Byron Murphy.

Scottsdale (AZ) Saguaro junior cornerback Byron Murphy is one of the top prospects on the West Coast and added another offer to his already impressive list when Wisconsin threw its hat into the mix.

"Coach Moans and I were talking about how the Wisconsin coaches really like me and then I got offered on the phone," Murphy told BadgerNation. "My reaction I had was so excited and just couldn't stop thinking about it. It just motivates me to keep working hard and stay humble. Every offer surprised me and I didn't know it was coming and I really don't know that much about them.

"I am very interested in Wisconsin and I will visit Wisconsin. I really don't know much about Wisconsin, but I would love to go and visit and experience how it is out there."

The 6-1, 180-pound physical corner updates how his recruitment looks now and how his most recent visit to Arizona went.

"I'm not really sure about my top list anymore," said Murphy. "I was supposed to go visit Ohio State, but we couldn't find a plane ticket and I took a visit to Arizona. It went very well and it is a beautiful campus. Everything was nice and everyone was very nice and respectful for my first visit. It went really well and I loved it."
