Murray sees recruiting pick up

Mt. San Antonio is loaded with D-1 talent and S Malcolm Murray(6-1, 199) is a full-qualifier who will be available this coming December. JCFootball.com caught up with Murphy recently and he talked about how recruiting is coming along as well as what his mindset is while playing "center field"...

Murray signed with Weber State out of high school, but after greyshirting he decided to take the JUCO route instead.

"I knew I could play at a higher level," Murray said confidently. "It's nothing against their program, but I didn't want to limit myself, so Mt. SAC was the school to choose since they are always a great team and I liked the thought of facing off against the best talent every day in practice."

At the So Cal JCFootball.com Combine, Murray was one of the top performers, posting a 4.4 forty time, a 34-inch vertical and 13 reps of 225 pounds on the bench.

Now he's hearing from schools across the country and some could be close to offering.

"Arizona, Utah State, Washington and USC have all been by practice," Murray told JCFootball.com. "Tennessee was by last Thursday and Colorado State has been by too.

"No one has offered me yet, but I think that's because they don't know I can leave in December. Arizona seems the most interested and may offer soon, but right now I don't have any yet."

While he's a heavy-hitter, he said when the ball is in the air, he considers the pigskin his.

"I break on the ball well and if it's a jump ball, I feel that ball is mine," Murray said. "I run well, so that allows me to cover a lot of ground and then when I get there I can make a play on the ball."

As mentioned earlier, Murray will be available to leave in December and if he does he will have four years to play three wherever he ends up.
