USC target DE Myles Murphy sees all the bling at Alabama Gamecocks June 17, 2019, | sportstalksc.com USC target DE Myles Murphy of Greensboro, NC made an official visit to Alabama over the weekend. That visit followed earlier officials to Florida and USC and precedes one to North Carolina this weekend. All the schools offer nice facilities and good educational opportunities, but Murphy saw some things at Alabama the others can’t match. “They just flash a lot of trophies and rings,” Murphy said. “Other facilities I went thru was like equipment. There’s is just like fancy, for like national championships and all that.” Murphy, as he did on his previous stops, got the chance to visit with the head coach. In the case of Alabama, that means Nick Saban. Murphy found Saban to be just like the guy he’s seen on TV. “It was good,” he said of the meeting. “He’s a good person. He’s like a serious person, though. Much different than other head coaches. I look at it like him being who he is, him acting the way he is. He knows who he is.” Murphy said he will follow thru on his plans to take an official visit to North Carolina this weekend. And that will be his final visit. After that, it will be decision time and he’s looking at early to mid-July for that. “They all stand as one, I feel the same on each one of them,” Murphy said. “It’s going to be one small thing that’s going to separate away from me making my decision. How the championship coaches feel that I’ve got for the people around there.” “They all stand as one, I feel the same on each one of them,” Murphy said. “It’s going to be one small thing that’s going to separate one away from me making my decision. Like how I feel about the team and the coaches, and the facilities and all the people around there.” Murphy said he hears from USC every day and it’s possible he could return to USC for another visit before his decision. He said the USC and Alabama visits really stand out to him, though he said he also liked the Florida visit.

Murphy says Gamecocks even stronger with him after visit June 02, 2019, | sportstalksc.com DE Myles Murphy (6-6 280) of Greensboro, NC was favoring USC going into his official visit over the weekend. He did not intend to commit on the visit and he did not as he plans to continue with some official visits this month. But that’s not to say the visit wasn’t beneficial to the Gamecocks in their pursuit of one of the nation’s top defensive end prospects. “I’ve got two more official visits, maybe three, and then I will make my decision,” Murphy said. “They are still the leader. They are stronger (as a leader). I can’t see anybody overtaking.” The Gamecocks will have to withstand some strong competition over the next weekends as Murphy plans to take an official visit to Florida next weekend and Alabama the weekend after that. He’s also considering taking an official visit to North Carolina June 20th before rendering the final verdict. USC apparently did all it could do over the weekend to convince Murphy there’s no need to look elsewhere. “It was great, I loved it,” Murphy said. “How the players interactive, we were all close. The coaches treat us like it was home. I loved it here. It was good.” Murphy said he really enjoyed the Saturday visit wo Will Muschamp’s house on Lake Murray and his opportunity to visit with the coach before departing for home. “He was telling me how much I would achieve here, how it would be like home, just two hours away from home and playing for the greatest fan base they have in Columbia,” Murphy said. “He’s a great person, he’s like one of us. And that house was amazing.” Murphy does not have a set date for an announcement but plans to make his decision after he completes the remaining official visits.
Gamecocks sitting in lead spot with Murphy May 29, 2019, | sportstalksc.com DE Myles Murphy of Greensboro, NC will take his official visit to USC this weekend with his parents alongside. Tuesday night Murphy declared the Gamecocks as his favorite over a field that includes North Carolina, LSU, Florida and Alabama. So, with the Gamecocks out front heading into the visit, that certainly puts Murphy on commitment for the weekend. “It’s a chance but I want to look around and go on to some other visits,” Murphy said. He took an unofficial visit to USC in February so he wants to use this visit to get more information on the school as a whole. “I’ve already seen most of it from my first visit and this time I want to look into getting more details,” he said. “Like how they prepare classes day in and day out.” USC coach Will Muschamp has been a personal recruiter of Murphy along with his assistant coaches. “They’ve been on me a lot, show me a lot of love,” Murphy said. “Coach Muschamp the most. He texts me a lot each week and we’ve talked liked twice. I feel great about that. They make me feel welcomed. They want me as a pass rusher coming off the edge, so I know I’ll be playing on the end and giving them a good pass rush, or whatever they want. I will be a perfect fit for it.” Murphy also has official visits set with Florida, Alabama and North Carolina the three weekends following the USC visit. He also plans to set a visit with LSU. “As soon as I’m done with my officials I am making my decision,” he said. “I want to get all of them out of the way and make my decision.”
DE Myles Murphy has Gamecocks in final five May 15, 2019, | By SportsTalk Radio Network DE Myles Murphy (6-6 280) of Greensboro, NC announced his top five Tuesday night. His focus moving forward will be on USC, North Carolina, LSU, Florida and Alabama. Gamecock recruiters Travaris Robinson and Kyle Krantz were by his school Tuesday and their work has put the Gamecocks in a good spot with him. “They offered me a couple of months ago when I first started to get offers and they’ve been showing me a lot of love,” Murphy said. “They’ve always been in the picture. They showed me that I can be a centerpiece of what they’re doing and showed me I can lead the way if I went there. I can just take over if I went there, be a dominating player. They say they like my speed and strength and my motor.” Murphy said he’s used strictly as a pass rushing defensive end. Despite his current size, he doesn’t expect to move inside because he plans to drop 10-20 pounds before getting to college. Murphy made an unofficial visit to USC in February. He has set an official visit with the Gamecocks for May 31st. “I want to see how they can develop me with academics so if I don’t go to the league, can I make sure I get a good degree,” he said. “Make sure I get a good education.” He also has an official visit to Alabama set for June 14th. He plans to take official visits to the other three this summer and make a decision later in the summer. He grew up an LSU fan but that’s not a factor with his decision. Of his final five, Murphy said USC and North Carolina have been recruiting him the hardest. He’s also been unofficially to Chapel Hill.
4-star pass rusher DE Myles Murphy’s has Gamecocks atop his list April 17, 2019 Take a gander at Myles Murphy’s timeline, and things don’t look bad for South Carolina football. The four-star defensive end is set to be back on campus in less than two weeks. A month later, he’ll be back on campus for his official visit. Oh, and he’ll make his decision in June. On Tuesday, the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder watched his new teammate, wide receiver Mike Wyman, announce a long-silent pledge to the Gamecocks. Afterward, he said South Carolina leads a list that includes Alabama, LSU and UNC. USC was among his first offers, and he’s built a bond with some of the coaches in Columbia. “I talked to coach (John) Scott a lot and (Will) Muschamp,” Murphy said. “Me and coach Muschamp, we talk every day. He’s just telling me about academics, if I don’t make it to the league, they can make sure I graduate, do all that good stuff I wanted to do.” Murphy is the No. 177 player in the country in the 247 Sports composite rankings. He’s 10th among strongside defensive ends and ninth among players in North Carolina. He recently transferred from Southwest Guilford High School to join Wyman at Dudley. He’s moving from an 8-4 team to one that went 10-4 last season. As a junior, he posted 53 tackles, 18 for loss, and 10 sacks on a defense that allowed 12.6 points per game. He said the Gamecocks are recruiting him as an end and outside linebacker, so likely the hybrid Buck position where they tend to put top pass rushers. What transpires over the next couple months could impact the Gamecocks’ position, but for the moment, the blue chipper likes Muschamp, has a teammate already in the fold and has a very high opinion of the program putting on a full-court press. “I love South Carolina,” Murphy said.
Four-star defensive end set to visit Gamecocks this weekend February 01, 2019 South Carolina football has had some transition in terms of defensive line coaching, with Lance Thompson moving on and John Scott Jr. joining the staff. It doesn’t appear to have hurt the Gamecocks’ ability to get involved with high-profile linemen. DE Myles Murphy, a four-star lineman from Southwest Guilford High School in North Carolina, tweeted he’ll be in Columbia this weekend. He’s currently the No. 184 player in the country in the 247 Composite rankings for the 2020 class. Murphy (6-foot-4, 260 pounds) already has offers from Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. As a high school junior, he led his team with 53 solo tackles, 18 for loss and 10 sacks. He was part of a defense that allowed 12.6 points per game and carried a lower-scoring team to an 8-4 record. USC is close to wrapping up a strong defensive line class, led by five-star Zacch Pickens and four-star Joseph Anderson. The Gamecocks are still in play for Jaquaze Sorrells, a top-160 recruit for 2019.
