Two offers on the table for Murray

Yet again the Mt. San Antonio Mounties are in the playoffs and yet again they have a plethora of talented prospects to keep an eye on. One that seems to be rising up recruiting boards is S Malcolm Murray (6-2, 210) who just pulled in his second BCS offer. caught up with the talented safety prospect and he updated us on things...

Murray prepped at Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, Ca. and received some recruiting interest from schools up and down the west coast. He signed with Weber State and enrolled there but after his first year there he knew he wanted a chance at playing D-1 ball.

"Nothing against the coaches or the players there, but I felt I could play at a higher level," Murray told this summer. "I thought it was the best that I come here to Mt. SAC because of the program and the fact that it was still pretty close to home. I thought they could help get me ready for the next level because of their history of getting guys moved on to four-year programs and because of the talent they have here."

Murray redshirted in 2008 so this year has been his chance to shine and he has, posting 45 tackles, two interceptions and 10 passes defensed while helping lead the Mounties to a 10-1 record and a big state semifinal matchup against Bakersfield this weekend.

"They're a tough team, but we have a lot of momentum right now," Murray said. "We're all playing well and we're all focused on what we need to do."

Because of his prototypical size and speed (4.45), Murray has risen up recruiting boards of late and actually has pulled in two offers from BCS schools.

"Kansas offered me a little while ago and I'm visiting them on December 6th," Murray noted. "Coach (Je'Ney) Jackson called me and asked me if I'd like an offer from them and I was really excited and he said they were offering me and they wanted me to take a visit.

"Minnesota just offered me too and I'll probably visit them coming up here pretty soon too. I haven't set the date with them, but it will be pretty quickly after I visit Kansas."

The three other schools in the mix are Nevada, Illinois and Auburn, but none have offered.

Murray is on pace to sign with a school in the early signing period and will have three years to play three wherever he ends up.
