Murray Undecided on Future Plans

Running back DeMarco Murray still considering foregoing senior year: Don't count on DeMarco Murray's return to Oklahoma just yet. The junior running back, who previously said he was "pretty sure" he would return for his senior season, said Wednesday he hadn’t made up his mind. "I feel like I've got to take the opportunity to at least think about it, not put a stamp on it and say I'm going to come back next year," said Murray, the Sooners' second-leading rusher and receiver heading into their Dec. 31 Sun Bowl game against Stanford. "I haven"t made any decisions yet. I’m still thinking about it. At the end of the day I’ve got to make the best decision for myself. "If I do want to come back, I've got to come back for the right reasons. I want to help this team win a national championship. But in the position I am, I think I at least need to take this shot and think about it and see where it goes after the bowl game." A month ago, Murray said: "I like it here. I don't want to end my career at OU with an 8-4 record or whatever, so I'm just trying to get better. And I just enjoy being here. I'm part of a great team here. I love the coaching staff. I love the camaraderie with my teammates." Monday after practice, he said: "Whenever I said that, I was just in the moment and felt I need to come back. But after talking to coaches and things like that, they agree with me that I need to look at both sides and figure out what I'm going to do." (More at Tulsa World)
