Murphy to graduate early

Alex Murphy (6'8, 215 lb. small forward out of St. Mark's High School in Southborough, MA. by way of South Kingston, RI.) committed to Duke in February of this year as a part of the 2012 recruiting class, but he has since decided this week to reclassify into the class of 2011 which will allow for him to enroll at Duke this upcoming Fall.

For a guy his size, Murphy can do it all at his position. He plays tough defense, he shoots the ball extremely well from the floor, and in fast break situations he attacks the rim with an attitude.

Alex displayed his talents this past weekend at the Real Deal in the Rock, as he led his 17u New England Playaz squad to the Finals in one of the most prestigious tournaments in the land.

He also considered UNC, Arizona, Kansas, and Florida (his older brother Erik Murphy attends Florida) before deciding on Duke.
