FSU football: Keep an eye on receiver Nyqwan Murray



TALLAHASSEE -- Florida State's open practice Sunday gave fans (and reporters) their best glimpse into this year's team.

My takeaway: Keep an eye on sophomore receiver Nyqwan Murray.

"You saw a guy there that I start seeing can make some plays," coach Jimbo Fisher said.

Murray played four games last season as a true freshman. The 5-foot-11, 176-pound Orlando native totaled six catches for 65 yards. But Fisher has stressed that young receivers will have many opportunities this fall. That list includes George Campbell, the former East Lake High star who spent part of Sunday's practice working with the first team, and Wharton High alum Auden Tate.

But Murray kept jumping out Sunday. Fisher called Murray "legit" and said he could grow into a bigger role this season.

"I hope a huge one," Fisher said. "Could have a big one. If he's doing as good as he keeps doing, he'll get about as big a role as he wants."
