A strong run blocker, Murriel paved the way for a Jaguars offense that last season averaged 258 rushing yards and 376 yards of total offense per game. He also contributed to the success of one of the Treasure Coast’s top dual-threat quarterbacks, D.J. Juste (2,265 yards of total offense, 21 touchdowns).

Murriel, ranked as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, had offers from FAU, FAMU, Georgia State, Memphis, New Mexico State and Western Kentucky.

Along with Marshall, took official visits to FAMU, Bethune-Cookman, FAU and Georgia State.
