STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Flint Powers lineman Logan Murray takes PWO offer from MSU
Calling it his “dream school,” Flint Powers offensive guard Logan Murray accepted a preferred walk-on spot at Michigan State on Sunday.
The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Murray, who also plays defensive tackle for the Chargers, announced his decision on Twitter.
“First off, I want to thank God. Without him, none of this would be possible. I want to thank my mom for everything she does for me. Happy Mother’s Day!! Growing up, my dream was to play Division I football, and I would like to thank all of the coaches that have helped me achieve my dream,” Murray wrote in his announcement tweet. “The most important thank you is to Powers Catholic High School for giving me a place to call home. … I would like to thank all of the universities that have given me a chance to play football at the next level, but I have found a place to call home.”
According to 247Sports, Murray was a two-star prospect, the No. 68 player in Michigan, and the No. 92 offensive guard in the class of 2021 across the country. Murray had 11 offers, including Syracuse, Liberty, Morgan State, South Alabama, Southern Illinois and Southern Miss. He also had an offer as a walk-on at Michigan.
Michigan State’s Class of 2021 has 12 hard commits, including five — Warren Mott’s Tyson Watson, East Lansing’s Ethan Boyd, Detroit Loyola’s Derrick Harmon and Oak Park’s Davion Primm — from the state of Michigan.
