The Case for Murao
When you look at Murao, he’s a jaw-dropping prospect from every aspect. His build, his footwork, his physicality, and raw talent are all incredibly rare from a high schooler. He has the ability to come in and compete for, and possibly win the starting job during the eight-month adjustment period he’ll have between spring ball and summer camp.
Next, he’s not just going to be handed the starting job because he’s a top 100 recruit. If Murao wins the job, it’s going to be because he earned it. He’ll be practicing against a bunch of high round NFL draft potential along the defensive line, so he’s going to have his work cut out for him in practice every day.
Murao has also proven that he shines brightest when the competition is at its best. At The Opening Finals, and at the Adidas All-American Bowl, Murao put on a show against Clemson commit, and the number one rated player in the 2020 class, Bryan Bresee.
