Kamari Murphy became the most recent player to exit the Oklahoma State program when he announced his decision to transfer on May 8. The 6-foot-8 sophomore is planning on visiting a pair of programs in Florida in early June.
Murphy, a Brooklyn native who attended IMG Academy in Florida, is scheduled to visit South Florida on June 1 and Miami a week later, according to Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv, who spoke with Murphy’s former AAU coach, Dana Dingle.
Miami head coach Jim Larranaga has scored with transfers in the past, most recently, his back court of Angel Rodriguez (Kansas State) and Sheldon McClellan (Texas), both of whom are eligible this upcoming season. South Florida hired Kentucky assistant Orlando Antigua on April 1. It didn’t take him long to land his first impact transfer in ex-Marshall point guard Kareem Canty.
Murphy averaged 6.1 points and 6.3 boards per game for the Cowboys, being inserted into the starting lineup when Michael Cobbins went down with an injury in late December. He’ll have two years left to play once he sits out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
