“I think we addressed some needs,” Kennesaw State coach Brian Bohannon said of Wednesday’s signees. “It’s a really good class. I think we got more accomplished than we thought we would in this early signing period. We weren’t sure exactly, but we got it now that we’re down to three or four spots in January that we have to look at. Last year we signed eight, so it’s been really good.”
In addition to Murphy, the Owls signed six other transfers Wednesday in offensive linemen Alexzander Feliz from Asa College in Hialeah, Fla., Jack Chavis from Holmes Community College in Goodman, Miss., teammates defensive backs Darius Miller and Kadarius Satterwhite from Dodge City Community College, offensive lineman Jeremiah Paulo from Long Beach City College and offensive lineman Jake Lassiter from Colleyville Community College in Kansas.
In four seasons, Bohannon has led the Owls to a 37-12 record, two consecutive Big South titles and back-to-back appearances at the FCS Playoffs quarterfinals. Kennesaw State is coming off an 11-2 season where it earned the No. 4 seed and a first-round bye in the FCS playoffs, but lost to South Dakota State on Dec. 8.
