Aranda's involvement, winning with defense led to Murphy's commitment to Baylor

June 29, 2020

Byron Murphy II‍ ‍ didn’t pay much attention or know a lot about Baylor this time a year ago, but as the 2019 season progressed and the Bears entered the final month of the regular season with a chance to reach the College Football Playoffs, he began to take notice. 

“I didn’t really pay attention that much to Baylor until like really this year,” Murphy told SicEm365 Radio. “They had a big turn around season so they caught my eye this year.”

Baylor was perfect 9-0 while winning with defense, a result that shifted the highly regarded defensive lineman’s mindset from a non-enthusiastic one to wanting to give his verbal pledge less than eight months later.
