Collin Murray-Boyles committed to South Carolina prior to the July live period this summer. He chose the Gamecocks over the likes of St. Bonaventure and SMU.

The No. 114 player in the 2023 On3 150 has been one of the most consistent players this season on the NIBC Circuit for Pleasant Grove (UT) Wasatch Academy. Listed as a 6-foot-8 forward, he has been averaging close to a double-double with efficiency this season.

Through 12 games charted this season, the native of Columbia, South Carolina, is averaging 14.0 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 1.5 steals.

Here is my recent conversation with Collin Murray-Boyles.
