2020 PF Max Murrell -> Stanford

Recommended Posts

Now that this kid is seeing his recruiting blow up (8 offers in 5 hours, including Creighton, Kansas State, Minnesota and Virginia Tech), I thought he probably deserved his own thread.

 

What happened that he's suddenly blowing up?

So, let me get this straight. Max Murrell, now with offers from 4 different P6 programs, plays on the same HS team with 2021 Rivals top 56 Hunter Sallis and 2022 Husker offeree Jasen Green. When was the last time a Nebraska HS had 3 high major D1 prospects on the same basketball team?

The offers are coming from the Midwest Showcase. Team Factory plays on the second division of the Under Armour circuit, so he hasn't really been exposed to a lot of high-major coaches for the most part.

 

The UMKC offer was his first and came after he performed well at their elite camp; UMKC fired that coaching staff, however. He received offers from UC-Santa Barbara, UC-Davis, William & Mary and Boston after a strong weekend at the UAA Rise (the second division) in KC back in May. The last 9 offers are all from this weekend including all the high-major ones.

 

He needs to add a lot of weight to his frame but he's a really good athlete and can shoot out to the 3-point line, plus he's a great shot-blocker. He's a really smart kid too.

Hard not to offer a dude from just down the street when P5 programs in the backyard are offering.

 

This has Mike Daum written all over it.

 

I wonder if Daum would have received a lot more offers if he had played in Omaha growing up.

Daum’s story is interesting. Even in his freshman year in college he and his coach thought he would go nowhere. That was the point where Daum dedicated himself and built himself for into the player he is today.

Just my humble opinion -- but yes, without a doubt, without question.  But again, that is just my opinion.
