Maalik Murphy-Duke

Redshirt sophomore Maalik Murphy was one of the high-profile Power Five quarterback transfers in the portal early this offseason. He transferred from Texas to Duke after spending the first two years of his collegiate career in Austin.

Murphy went 2-0 as Texas's starting quarterback, winning two key games at home in Big 12 play last season. He is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job at Duke entering the 2024 season. Murphy is reportedly (per The News & Observer) settling into the competition at Duke, displaying his immense arm talent during spring ball in Durham.
