How'd He Get Here: Murphy started his career with the Florida Gators, originally recruited by Steve Addazio. He was a 2* recruit that chose Florida over Fordham, Syracuse and Temple (who wouldn't). Came to Boston College this winter to play for Addazio, and chose the Eagles over Louisville. Practiced with the first team this spring and projects to be the starting quarterback this fall.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: 2* Rivals (#10 recruit in Connecticut), 3* ESPN (rated a 78, 54th ranked athlete), 3* on 247

Twitter Feed: Nope, but you can find a really lame parody account started by some jaded Florida fan @TylerMurphy10

Tweetable: N/A

Uniform History: Last year former WR Nigel Matthews wore the number. Quarterback and future NFL'er/St. John's Prep coach Brian St. Pierre wore the #2 from 1999-02, while wide receiver and Matt Ryan favorite target Brandon Robinson wore it from 2006-08. RB Montel Harris wore the number before he ended up in Frank Spaziani's infamous doghouse.

What Does Addazio Think Of Him: ""You’re talking about a guy (Murphy) who’s been in the heat of the battle. He’s a veteran, experienced guy who’s been a starter in the SEC," Addazio added. "… He’s got tremendous pocket presence. He throws the ball really well and is obviously really dynamic with his feet."

Highlights: Possibly Murphy's best game (minus the face mask fumble) against Tennessee. Murphy enters the game around the :40 mark.
