Are you ready for your daily Jamal Murray update? According to Canadian news site The Globe and Mail, the five-star shooting guard is hoping to make his decision “by June”:
Murray is likely to decide by June. High school players typically decide by the national letter-of-intent deadline, which this year was set for May 20 — but Murray has rushed to complete additional schoolwork so he can play college hoops this fall, instead of the planned 2016. To do so, he would bypass the letter-of-intent deadline and sign a letter of financial aid at some later point.
Murray wrapped up a lengthy visit to Lexington late last week. On Friday, he told Adam Zagoria said he hoped to make a decision within two months, so hopefully the slightly shortened timetable is good news for the Cats. The Globe and Mail reports that Murray has also been contacted by Duke, and over the weekend, his father told Jeff Borzello that Oregon, Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana, and UConn are also in the mix.
Wouldn’t it be nice if “by June” meant by June 1 and not June 30?
