247sports.com and Rivals have reported that South Florida Bulls Basketball have gotten a commitment from four-star shooting guard Caleb Murphy out of Grayson High School in Georgia.

Primary Recruiter: Larry Dixon and Brian Gregory
Caleb Murphy is a top-15 shooting guard, and top-60 overall player in the 2020 recruiting cycle according to Rivals. The momentum for USF Basketball continues to roll after their CBI Championship last season, and adding a player like Murphy shows the future will continue to be bright for USF. He took an official visit to USF over the weekend, and had a few more lined up in the coming weeks, but he called them all off in favor of committing to USF.
Murphy now becomes the fourth-best prospect to commit to USF ever, only behind John Egbunu, Konimba Diarra, and Dante Curry.
His jump shot remains a work in progress but it is his defensive prowess, energy levels and intangibles that should make him a day one producer for Brian Gregory’s squad.
This a huge get for the Bulls as they continue to tread in the right direction on the basketball court.
