  • Toure Murry

    I have been fortunate to see him play several times this year but have not seen him play lately. Klein Forest is currently ranked 3rd in 5A in Tx. and 1st in Houston and I know Toure is their tallest player and plays point alot for them. His upside is SCARY with his recent growth spurt. This kid has a tremendous future on the college level. He is 6'4 and could be 6'6 with a wing span of 6'9 by the start of next year!

          Toure can flat out score, he is a GREAT team defender and understands the game very well but will have to adjust to guarding jet quick players on a night in and night out basis. His quickness and athletism have not yet caught up with his growth spurt but it will. He has gone from 5'10 to 6'4 in one year and his body is just starting to develop. He is playing WAY above the rim and has the potential to be a better college player than HS player. He is being compared to Josh Carter at Texas A&M except more athletic. He is benefiting from playing with 3 other D1 players.

                thanks for taking off the yellow shades Hotel. I will believe it, when I see it. We as fans need to stop over hyping these players, and just let them come in and play basketball. Fans telling them how good they are and what not is just extra pressure they have to live up to. All I know is that Cooz, Oggirri and Brauer were not over hyped, and look how they turned out.

                Let them under promise and over deliver.

                  Actually, Ogirri was probably over hyped. He was a Rivals 150 and had many glowing reviews written about him. I wouldn't say he completely disappointed though. With the exception of never developing anything other than his shot.

                    He does seem to have a good upside to him, and I am a little more jazzed about Toure than Kyles right now.

                    What can be great to see is how all the guards develop together. Sometimes after meeting your new teammates and becoming friends, and getting used to each other, it can become something special on the court. How they pair on the court could be interesting.

                      Toure

                      I am going to his game tonight and will give an update afterwards.
                      HTOWN44 - what part of town do you live in? Are you going to the game tonight?

                        Dan - wish I could join you.

                        I wanted to get to one of his games last month, but had stuff crop up at the last minute. I might try to go next Friday when they play Spring.

                            You can get a pair in the sporting goods section at Wal-Mart. They are made by Remington for shooting.
