On a weekend when Stanford was the only FBS school that could host official visitors, the majority of the Cardinal commits made it out to campus. One of those commits that visited was Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly cornerback Alameen Murphy.

"Everything went well," the 5-foot-10, 181-pound Murphy said. "California is a beautiful place and I got to meet a lot of the recruits. That was a very good visit for me.
"I got to our around the new facilities and see a lot of the coaches again. The coaching staff is great. They understand me as a player. They know my strengths and weaknesses and know where I can fit in the program. They all welcome me like family. It's a real family bond there."
Murphy benefitted from having most of the Stanford commits being together.
"The most important thing was meeting the players again because those are the guys I'm going to spend the next four years with," Murphy said. "Meeting them was great and they're all very similar to me.
"I got a chance to meet all of the recruits and they were all pretty cool. I got to hang out with Christian McCaffrey because our hosts were friends. He is pretty cool and we are pretty similar."
Murphy's host, Alex Carter, grew up not too far from where Murphy is from, so the two have a fair amount in common.
"I knew Alex's father before I committed," said Murphy. "My mother and I have talked about the school. I met Alex the first time I went out to Stanford and he's really cool."
Stanford is one of the nation's top academic institutions and they require their athletes to meet a very high standard when it comes to their grades. Murphy is still waiting for his grades to come back before he can submit his application.
