If you had any doubts that Demarco Murray of Las Vegas Bishop Gorman is one of the nation's elite prospects, just check out his stats from his senior season. The 6-foot, 183-pound five-star prospect destroyed competition through the air, on the ground and also on defense.
"I am finishing up his highlight tape as we speak, and if you thought last year's was great, I'm telling you this one is unbelievable," Bishop Gorman coach David White said. "He was freaking incredible."
The numbers agree.
Murray rushed for 1,947 yards and 27 touchdowns on 153 attempts. That averages out to 12.7 yards a carry. He also racked up 22 catches for 624 yards and seven scores, showing why he's the nation's No. 1 all-purpose back.
Murray also got it done on defense with 64 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, three sacks, three forced fumbles and two interceptions.
"What's even more impressive is that he didn't play in the fourth quarter in four games, didn't play in one game because he had strep throat and was really sick and weak," White said. "He also had five touchdowns and about 300 yards called back on penalties."
When it comes to recruiting, White said a top three has emerged.
"There is a definitely a solid top three with OU, Florida and USC," White said. "Some are saying he's USC's to lose, I'm not really sure if that's true. USC, Florida, Oklahoma, Miami and Penn State are his final five.
"Texas A&M is not in his final five according to Demarco."
