Overall Rank: #34
Position (Rank): Small Forward (#10)
High School: St. Mark’s (Massachusetts)
Evaluation: Murphy has a striking resemblance to former Blue Devil Kyle Singler. He has a nice shooting stroke and does an excellent job setting his feet before he takes his shot. He is also surprisingly athletic and is a great ball-handler for a wing-player which enables him to be a superb slasher and good finisher. Murphy has great size and length as well and is very versatile. He has a good mid-range game too and has a lot of potential. The biggest room for improvement for him is his strength. He could also become a better rebounder given his size and athleticism, too.
