Murphy Holloway (Ole Miss bio), a 6'7" forward from Irmo has announced that he will be leaving Ole Miss and has been heavily rumored to announce his decision to transfer to Clemson very soon.  Even Kornblut, who is probably in tears at this point, has confirmed such so all indications point to this deal coming through for the Tigers.  The South Carolina native reportedly wants to get closer to home and Mississippi is not likely to release Holloway to another SEC squad.  It is widely rumored that family issues including Holloway's young baby in SC are the motivation for the transfer, as he appears to he happy in Mississippi and has not qualms with the coaches or any situation for the Rebels. 

Holloway helped the Rebels in '09-'10 with over 10 PPG and 7.6 RPG.  Holloway played in 65 games and logged over 1500 minutes in his two seasons in Oxford.  In his senior season at Dutch Fork High School, Holloway earned was named South Carolina's Mr. Basketball and the Gatorade 4-A SC State Player of the Year for the season.  Major recruiting services ranked him as one of the Top 70 players in the nation coming out of high school.

Murphy is a player who leaves it all on the court and plays to win the game.  I have yet to hear or read anything negative about this young man and am excited about the possibility of him coming to Clemson.  While we realize that he enjoyed his time at Ole Miss, we are eager to see this big man in orange and hope to hear confirmation about this move to Clemson from Holloway himself soon.  A player of this stature gives Clemson an instant presence inside and MH will surely be an asset to this program.
