Antwon Murray (CB, Lakeland, FL) - Kathleen High brought over their team for the Ole Miss 7 on 7 passing camp and turned some heads when the won the tournament over some of the Region's top programs in South Panola, Tupelo, Whitehaven, MUS, and Provine.One of the standouts on their team was their star cornerback, Antwon Murray.

Antwon displayed shutdown ability as he continually locked down some of the area's top receivers.

What makes Murray so dominate?

"I feel like I play hard, play smart, and play with a lot of passion. I also respect the game," added Antwon Murrah

Murrah is no secret around the Florida region as he helped Kathleen to the State Semifinal (3A) last season. He collected 60 tackles, 5 int's, and 18 pass breakups along the way.

How did it feel to win the Ole Miss Passing tournament?

"It felt great. It was a great experience. I got a chance to see the Ole Miss campus, which I really had been wanting to see. They were the first school to offer me a scholarship, so I really wanted to check them out. I got a chance to meet Coach Orgeron and go against some of the top WR's in that state. I think I held my own, and I got a chance to go against some of the top teams in that Region, and we won the camp, so we got a lot better as a team."

Which WR gave Murrah the most problems?

"It would have to be Dandrick Weatherby. He was really good."

Murray left the Ole Miss camp and headed to Auburn's two day individual camp.

"I was only able to stay the day, but I had a good experience. I got to compete against supposedly some of the best WR's in the nation, and I more than held my own. It let me know where my talents are at right now."

Antwon was not finished with his camping experience, as he left Auburn on Saturday and headed to Alabama's one day camp on Sunday.

"I had a great experience at Alabama. I already knew Coach Ball. They told my coach that they wanted to see me at their camp, so I went and checked out their facilities. It was also good to get coached by Coach Ball. He is a lot of fun to be around."

"Well, I felt real comfortable with Coaches Lubick (Ole Miss), Orgeron (Ole Miss), and Ball (Alabama)."

"Ole Miss, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Marshall, Nebraska, Eastern Michigan, Cincinnati, Bowling Green, and UNLV."

Did Alabama discuss his scholarship status during their camp?

"No sir, they did not talk about an offer."

Finally, who makes up Murray's wish list?

"Iowa State, Ole Miss, and Nebraska are my Top 3 schools right now."

What stands out about Iowa State?

"I just like how Coach Harris recruits me. They were the second school to offer me. I call Coach Harris a lot, and I like what I see from their facilities from the internet. I just think I can make a great impact for the Cyclones."

And what about Nebraska?

"To get an offer from a great traditional school like Nebraska is just an honor. I also coach E. He and I are real cool. I think Nebraska could be a great fit for me. I want to take a trip out there and see what it is like."

Will Antwon make an early commitment?

"No sir, I will take all five of my official visits, and go from there."

Murrah carries a 3.5 GPA / 840 SAT.
