Senior Advanced Camp. By the end of the day, Murray had posted on
Facebook that he’d committed. Said Murray: ‘I’m a BUCKEYE baby!!’…

Murray, who also had offers from Kent State, Toledo, Bowling Green, Ohio, Miami of Ohio, Akron, Buffalo and Indiana, also updated his profile on ScoutingOhio.com to show he was an Ohio State verbal.

Last year Murray had 62 tackles, two INTs and two forced fumbles.

Look for more on Murray in the upcoming Ohio High School Football Preview. Rest assured he’ll be among the vaunted Top 200 (but where?) and on the JJHuddle D-III Preseason All-Ohio team…


Bucks Land Commitment No.

In my camp story this afternoon I
mentioned defensive back Najee Murray
(Steubenville, Ohio/Steubenville) was impressive at the Ohio State
Senior Advanced Camp and definitely caught the eye of the OSU staff.Murray did much more than just catch
their eye.

“I called coach (Luke) Fickell (moments ago) and he offered me a
scholarship,” Murray said. “He told me how he loved what I did at camp. I
committed right away.”

The 5-foot-11 and 180-pound Murray has been a two-year starter at
safety. He made 65 tackles with an interception his sophomore season
and had 62 tackles with two interceptions last season.

However, Murray worked out today at Ohio State as a cornerback
and that is what he will play for the Buckeyes. He won an MVP award at
the Bucks’ camp today.

“The camp went real well,” Murray said. “I showed I can play
cornerback. The Ohio State coaches were really impressed.”

Murray has 10 scholarship offers. His list includes Indiana, Kent
State, Toledo, Bowling Green, Miami of Ohio, Akron, Ball State and
Buffalo. But the decision to be a Buckeye was an easy one for Murray.

“I thought it was the best choice for me and my parents,” Murray
said. “It was the right fit. I love the coaches.

The recruiting process is over and now I can focus on my senior
season.”

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: I was very impressed with Murray today.
He has outstanding speed and showed he can cover. His commitment
fills a spot that was perhaps going to be a tough one for the Bucks to
fill. It is simply not a great year for pure corners in the state of
Ohio. Now that the Bucks have Murray they can set their sites on
landing one more corner and also feel good about having one in the bank.
