Murphy focused on four
Byron Murphy took his first official visit last weekend and everything appears to be coming together for the four-star prospect.
The nation's No. 4-rated cornerback from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro traveled to Washington to see the Huskies take on California and, even though they lost, Murphy had a great time at the game and getting to know more of the coaches.
Murphy was on the trip with five-star wide receiver N'Keal Harry, who is considering many of the same schools.
"The visit was amazing," Murphy told Rivals.com. "All of our questions were answered by the coaches and it was truly everything I wanted following my visit there in the summer.
"We had a great connection and everything worked out. Right now, Washington is real high up there for me."

Up next for the 5-foot-11, 167-pound prospect is an official visit to Texas A&M for the Oct. 16 weekend when the Aggies host Alabama. Murphy said A&M is definitely among the four schools he is strongly considering.
"My main schools at the moment are Washington, Arizona State, USC and A&M," Murphy said. "I'm going to officially visit USC, probably for the final weekend when they play UCLA. With ASU, I'm not sure yet when that visit will be but I want to talk to the coaches to set that up."
Murphy has been hearing a lot from Aggies assistant Jeff Banks in recent weeks, so he's excited to get out to College Station, Texas, to see the school for the first time.
"Coach Banks has been hitting me up a lot and he's been telling me about starting right away," Murphy said. "I've heard the facilities are crazy and I can't wait to meet more of the coaches. I also know a couple players there and I want to see how I would fit."
Murphy, the No. 2-rated prospect in Arizona behind Harry, intends to announce his college decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January.
