USC offers OL Kyle Murphy 

February, 22, 2011
San Clemente (Calif.) ESPNU 150 Watch List offensive lineman Kyle Murphy just landed an offer from USC after taking an unofficial visit to the Trojans campus over the weekend.

"I've been to USC before but never talked much with the coaches there," said Murphy, who went with his parents to learn more about the school and the coaching staff. "I took a small tour of the campus but the visit was mostly to talk with the staff, drop off some more film and just get to know each other a little better. I liked it there a lot, USC is a great school with great tradition and it was real nice talking with their offensive line coach, James Cregg.

"They didn't offer me on the visit because they said they only had one game film and they wanted to see more tape. I gave them a few more games plus my highlight tape and they must have liked what they saw because they called my coaches [Tuesday] and offered me a scholarship. I also talked with coach [Ed] Orgeron and he wants me to call coach [Lane] Kiffin as well but I'm pretty excited about this offer for sure."
