One of the top players in the Empire State, Nedrow (N.Y.) Onondaga Central running back Latavius Murray kicked off the season last week. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder led his team to a big 50-42 victory.
"It was a fun game and looks like that might be the toughest game we'll have all year," he said. "Their team had a lot of athletes and each team found a weakness in the others defense.
"I did well coming out with 262-yards rushing and four touchdowns. I was pretty happy, but after watching the film there's always something I can improve on."
The three-star prospect currently holds five offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Maryland, Syracuse and Central Florida.
Has Murray looked into visits yet?
"I have, but it's a matter of me figuring where I can go," he said. "It's hard since I play Friday night. I guess we'll just have to see.
"I do plan to take some official visits. It depends when my coach thinks it's appropriate during the season."
A couple schools are talking to Murray despite not offering.
"I am getting some serious interest from Pittsburgh and North Carolina," he said. "I'd say probably more from Pitt. Mostly it is letters and I know UNC has asked about my transcript. Neither school has mentioned anything about offering."
