Four-star running back Marcus Murphy, a 2018 prospect from West Point, Mississippi, announced Tuesday that he’ll be staying in-state to play his college football. Murphy, who has offers from Alabama and Ole Miss, has announced that he’ll be playing at Mississippi State.
Murphy did say, however, that he’d still like other teams to recruit him and show interest. So while he’s committing to Mississippi State, it doesn’t appear that he’s willing to shut off communication with other programs. He’s a 2018 recruit, so it’s fair.
