Saint Peter’s transfer Jaylen “Juju” Murray has committed to Ole Miss, as first reported by Tipton Edits.
The 5-foot-11 guard from The Bronx averaged 12.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season for the Peacocks. He shot 36% from deep.
Murray was named to the All-MAAC Rookie Team in 2022 and to the All-MAAC Tournament team in 2023.
Murray is the fifth player to transfer to Chris Beard’s Ole Miss club this offseason, joining Moussa Cisse (Oklahoma State), Austin Nunez (Arizona State), Jamarion Sharp (Western Kentucky), and Brandon Murray (Georgetown).
