Latavius Murray takes two official visits

Nedrow (N.Y.) Onondaga Central running back Latavius Murray has taken two official visits already. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder has visited Boston College and UCF in recent weeks.
"I went to Boston College on September 21st," he stated. "I got up there and went to the game and they won. They played Army and could have done better, but the game itself was fun to be at. The fan support is really good and I liked all the activity going around.
"After the game, I ate and then hung out with my host, Jo-Lonn Dunbar. He just answered my questions. Then I met with the coaches. I talked to coach Jags and the linebacker coach. It was interesting and they were straight up. I thought coach Jags was a really cool guy. I liked him."
The week after that, I went to UCF for an official on the 28th.
"That was fun also," he said. "I had a good time there. I enjoyed the new stadium they have. It was a pretty good game that was exciting to watch. The fans were wild there too.
"After the game I met with the players and they were cool and then I talked to the coaches. I met coach O'Leary who was really nice."
Did either visit stick out to the three-star prospect?
"I learned a lot about both schools when I was down there," he said. "They both stick out to me. Both of them were good visits."
Next up for Murray is an official to Maryland.
"I plan to go to Maryland, but I haven't scheduled the visit yet. I'm also looking at a trip to Connecticut."
Currently the No. 5 prospect in New York claims no favorites.
This season, Murray has helped his team to a 7-0 record.
"We're doing good as a team and I'm playing well," he said. "I have 1,400 yards and 28 touchdowns. This year, I think I'm a little smarter and my vision is better. I'm also older."
