On the recruiting trail: Harris and Murphy getting more love

Romello Harris of Tulare Union - a rising Class of 2016 prospect armed with three scholarship offers - now has USC taking a closer look at him.

Harris, who has started on Tulare Union's varsity team since his freshman season, told Cali Gold Mine on Sunday, Aug. 10, that his high school head coach Darren Bennett told him the Trojans are taking a closer look at the Redskins' star. Harris said Trojan running back coach Johnny Nansen has had conversations with Bennett.

"My coach talked to him and he [Nansen] said that he wants me to come to the school, take a private tour and watch a practice," Harris said.

Harris holds offers from Colorado State, Air Force and Washington State. He's added interest from UCLA this month.

Harris has rushed for 2,807 yards in his two varsity seasons. He's scored 30 touchdowns.

Harris and Tulare Union begin the 2014-15 season at El Diamante-Visalia on Friday, Aug. 29.

Ju'Wan Murphy of Edison-Fresno could be close to getting his first offer. Murphy said the University of Idaho of the Sun Belt Conference is showing interest in him. 

Murphy, a Class of 2015 prospect, has lined up at wide receiver and cornerback for the always deep and talented Tigers.

Murphy (photo) has had an active offseason. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Murphy linked up with Tony Perry and DB Guru for the 7-on-7 season. He also impressed spectators at the July DB Guru Camp with his routes, footwork and hands at receiver.

Edison and Murphy opens the 2014-15 season with a scrimmage against Buchanan-Clovis at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 28. The Tigers' season opener is against state champion Bakersfield on Friday, Sept. 5, at Fresno City College's Ratcliffe Stadium.
