Demarco Murray Commits to Sooners

The Sooners landed a verbal commitment from Demarco Murray Saturday. Murray a 6-foot-0, 183 pound all-purpose back was ranked #2 by Rivals.com.

Murray is from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. He runs a 4.49 40. I don’t see the Sooners putting a red-shirt on him. Can you imagine the potential of a Murray/Peterson backfield?

"DeMarco’s athleticism combines fluid moves and a second gear burst which allows him to be able to score on any play. He was our leading rusher and receiver and will play a variety of positions both on offense and defense." -Bishop Gorman coach David White

Murray is the highest profile recruit the Sooners have landed thus far. He chose Oklahoma over Miami (FL), Penn State and USC.
