After being off the competitive softball field for about a year, former Brazoswood Lady Buc Kyndall Murray is ready to get back to playing at Texas A&M University.

Orally committed to Louisiana Lafayette when she graduated from Brazoswood in 2018, Murray was looking to becoming a Lady Cajun.

“About two weeks to signing, all coaches were fired,” Murray said of Lafayette. “So I decided to take a different route and I signed with Clemson.”

Clemson didn’t have a softball program but the school had plans to start one in 2020.

“I wasn’t able to play for a year, so I was really ready to get back on that,” Murray said. “While I was there, there were seven players, so we pretty much worked out and practiced every day. Clemson was pretty far away and I just thought that A&M would be a better place for me to go play.”

After classes let out at Clemson, Murray put in her transfer papers and away she went. Going into College Station, Murray will be a sophomore in school but a redshirt freshman on the field.

An outfielder, Murray joins former Lady Buc teammates Megan Smith and Morgan Smith, who just finished their freshman years at A&M.

“I’ve had a lot of time to practice and workout, I did it for a whole year,” Murray said. “Since I’ve been home, I am giving lessons, and of course I do work on my own with CrossFit and swimming. So I am doing pretty well in staying prepared.”

In her senior year at Brazoswood, Murray batted .461 with a .569 slugging percentage along with a .542 on-base percentage in 102 at-bats with 47 hits, 38 singles, 35 runs, 17 walks and 13 RBIs. Murray also was 30-for-31 on the base paths and fielded a perfect 1.000.
