    Connor Murphy has announced his commitment to UNLV.

    Would have been a nice addition to the depth chart for USC this year, but certainly understandable that he’d want to look elsewhere for an opportunity to see the field more. He’d been in the transfer portal for a little while. Glad to see he’s found a new home.

    Best known as one of the punt protectors along with Damien Mama.

    He’ll be missed.

    I thought he would have really blossomed after Gustin took him under his wing but it never happened.

    Erik,
    That leaves only Gaoteote in the portal. What is his status. Thanks.

    Sad that everyone thinks they are starting material. I wish him nothing but the best. Maybe he can blossom there

    Everyone deserves a chance to shine. He was never going to be anything other than a backup and special teams player here. UNLV is consistent with his talent level if he wants to start.

    Not sure on Gaoteote at this point. Seems like maybe he's aiming higher than his current options. There was a bit of talk about Ohio State at one point. I'm surprised it's taken this long for him to find a spot, but the inability to take true recruiting visits right now is making it difficult on everybody unless you're going to a spot you're familiar with already. His last couple of follows on Twitter have been Boise State coaches.

    I am hoping that Murphy is able to grab a spot in the lineup, solidify himself and get quality reps to get the film he is looking for to improve his stock.
    Thank you for everything you have done during your time here at USC Connor.
    I hope you are able to cement yourself as an impact player at UNLV and play your way into a respectable prospect.

    The kid wants a shot at playing time, so he’s better off elsewhere. Hope he gets some quality time before his eligibility is up.

    I remember his recruitment being a big deal. I think Harbaugh even slept over at his parents house. Thought we were going to lose him then. Its been said before but OT mightve been the best position for his body type. Best of luck to him.
