He’s back — again

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

DeMarco Mur­ray is back, and he’s in­jury free, which is a big feat for the se­nior run­ning back who’s played in 36 games for the Sooners and scored 45 touch­downs.

He red­shirted four years ago be­cause of a toe in­jury, and he missed the fi­nal three games of his red­shirt fresh­man sea­son with a frac­tured kneecap. As a sopho­more, he missed the fi­nal two games of the sea­son with a torn ham­string ten­don, and last year he missed a game with a sprained an­kle.

De­spite rush­ing for just 705 yards in 2009, Mur­ray was con­sid­er­ing leav­ing school early for the NFL draft.

“There was a time where I wasn’t tak­ing any phone calls or talk­ing to agents or coaches or fam­ily,” Mur­ray said. “I wanted to make the best de­ci­sion for DeMarco Mur­ray and no­body else.”
