Murray can jam

The story is well known.

Bob Stoops was visiting Las Vegas to recruit linebacker Ryan Reynolds at Bishop Gorman High School. While there, Stoops saw DeMarco Murray perform an amazing, acrobatic dunk in the school’s gym.

Stoops, reportedly, then and there, told Gorman coach David White (now a graduate assistant at OU) that Murray had a scholarship.

What is not widely known is what kind of dunk Murray performed that dazzled everyone so much.

According to Reynolds, who disclosed the dunk Tuesday, Murray threw the ball over the backboard and bounced it back off the wall underneath the backboard, essentially alley ooping the ball to himself before jamming it home.

“It was pretty cool,” Reynolds said. “(Coach Stoops) had a surprised look on his face.”
