According to FanRag Sports’ Jon Rothstein, former Bulls point guard Jahmal McMurray has decided to eventually enroll at Southern Methodist University after a brief stop at a junior college.
Former South Florida guard Jahmal McMurray has committed to SMU, he tells me. Will be eligible in December of 2017. Currently in JUCO.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) January 27, 2017
McMurray was suspended for the first six games of this season for a violation of team rules and played in three games before deciding to transfer. He averaged over 20 points per game in those three games, capped by a 25-point outburst in his only start of the season against South Carolina. That turned out to be the last time he would suit up for the Bulls.
As a freshman, he averaged 15.2 points and 2.5 assists per game, and was named to the American’s All-Rookie team. He has been missed on the floor this year as USF has struggled to generate any sort of consistent offense since he left.
McMurray will be able to play for the Mustangs in December 2017 and will have a year and a half of eligibility left.
