Former Ohio State DB Najee Murray lands at Kent State
Najee Murray started classes at Kent State and will join the football team immediately. He must sit out 2013 due to NCAA transfer rules.
One reason for the fast turnaround is Murray's familiarity with first-year Golden Flashes coach Paul Haynes. Haynes, a defensive assistant with the Buckeyes from 2005-11, met Murray and his family when the Steubenville, Ohio native was in high school.
"Najee was going through the [recruiting] process at Ohio State when I was there," Haynes told the Akron Beacon Journal. "He knows me and I knew him, so [Kent State] is kind of a good fit for him that way.
"I met his parents before and the funny thing is that my first college roommate knows his parents because they're from the same hometown. So there are a lot of things working in our favor."
Murray will sit out the 2013 season due to NCAA transfer rules, joining the Golden Flashes on the field in 2014 with three years of eligibility remaining.
Murray played in five of the first six games of the 2012 season as a true freshman, mostly on special teams, before suffering a season-ending knee injury in October. He recorded three tackles in his brief Buckeye career.
