6-5 DeSean Murray, who is transferring from Presbyterian College after emerging as one of the top players in the Big South, has set two official visits and is talking with several other schools. Murray, a North Carolina native, will visit Middle Tennessee State this weekend and Auburn April 29th. He’s not sure about his other visits at this point.
Murray has been in touch with USC but that was thru former assistant coach Lamont Evans who is now at Oklahoma State. He talked to Evans a week ago while he was still with the Gamecocks.
“He was just trying to get me up there,” Murray said. “I’m just looking for a place where I fit in best and a coach that’s best for me and the best style of play for my game.”
Murray also is looking at Richmond, Nevada, the College of Charleston and UNC-Wilmington. Middle Tennessee and Auburn sit as his top two but he’ll wait on a decision until after taking visits.
Murray averaged 21 points and 7 rebounds per game this season and had some big games against big name opponents. He had 15 points and 8 rebounds against Clemson and 20 and 11 versus Marquette this season, and as a freshman he had 14 points and 7 rebounds against Duke.
