About Murat I love to play basketball, but I also care about my education. Doing what I love through college is very crucial for me. Also, playing basketball abroad is very important to me to see what I am capable of as an athlete.

Personal info & Academics

Date of birth: 01.03.1996 Citizen: Turkey Sex: Male Height: 6’1� Weight: 165 lbs NCAA Clearinghouse No. 1303243222 High school: Aci High School Graduation: 2014 Grades: GPA: 3.5 College education goals: I am not going to college just to play basketball, I want to get an education. I was an above-average student and I plan to continue that work ethic and become a great student-athlete.


Why America? “I have always dreamed of playing basketball in the NCAA. Even the thought of playing in front of a large group of fans gives me goosebumps. Unfortunately, here in Turkey we do not attract as many fans and basketball is not as important as it is in the States.� Murat Deniz

Interview

Why should a coach choose you for their team? I believe my strongest side is on defense; I can make a lot of interceptions and steals. Even though I am a little bit undersized I can easily guard opponents bigger than me. On the offensive side I am a solid 3 point shooter and I have fine court vision. How hard do you work on your goals? Besides basketball I am a hard working student and I believe that is just as important as being a good athlete. College goals? I would like to compete for a championship team and graduate with a degree that I can use for the rest of my life. Additional information I also play soccer and many other sports so that I can keep in shape and continue to better my athletic ability.


Im ready Murat is not only gifted physically, but he represents the true meaning of a student-athlete. He will be a great addition to any team, both on the court and in the classroom.
