Murray lands Iowa State offer

On Monday, Tampa (Fla.) King wide receiver Chris Murray landed his third offer.
"Iowa State offered me today," Murray said. "They came to the school after the school day was over. They told my coach that they had me ranked high on their list and that they were ready to offer me. They then watched me practice."
Iowa State joins Kansas and Georgia Southern in offering Murray. His most recent offer wasn't completely out of the blue as he had been in contact with the Cyclones for a while.

"I had been talking with them for a while," Murray said. "They just had told me they were going to come see me during the spring. They had just been sending me a lot of letters."
The 5-foot-9, 168-pound prospect is listed as a wide receiver, but could also play defensive back. According to Murray, Iowa State is recruiting him for either spot.
"They asked me which one I would prefer and I said wide receiver," Murray said. "They said that they are recruiting me at both, that I can play both, but that I can decide."
At this stage of his recruitment, Murray knows a little bit about Paul Rhoads' program. He hopes to visit the program this summer.
"I have looked at their website a couple of times and looked at their coaches, their video, and stuff like that," Murray said.
As for his next offer, Murray believes that Ole Miss is close. The Rebels were also at his practice on Monday.
During his junior season, Murray recorded 27 receptions for 493 yards and seven touchdowns. He also rushed for 48 yards on 10 carries and scored another touchdown. Defensively, he had 22 tackles, five interceptions, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.
