Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Mass.)

Murphy showed his ability to score with his back to the basket here today. He hit jump hooks over his left shoulder. He really likes to post up and embraces the physicality. He is not a fluid runner of the floor, but he does have face up potential in the long term. He finished with 10 points and 1 rebound in this win over Tilton School.

Date: June 14, 2014
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Murphy’s energy and activity was infectious throughout the camp. He rebounds, finishes and will post up to score. He emerged as one of the top 2017 prospects from this event.
