McMurray, a sophomore, would be a productive get for the Longhorns, but he would also come with some baggage. He averaged 15.2 points, 2.5 assists and 35.2 minutes last season as a freshman — all South Florida highs — but earlier this season was suspended six games for a undisclosed violation. He returned on Dec. 3 and averaged 20 points per game over three games before deciding to transfer.
According to the report, McMurray also is considering St. John’s, Arizona State and Virginia Tech, among others.
