Oklahoma State has made a move to bolster it secondary with the signing of cornerback Malcolm Murray, a transfer from Mount San Antonio College in California.

Murray, will enroll at school in January and plans to participate in spring drills. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder will have three years of eligibility with the Cowboys.

After graduating from Junipero Serra High School in Los Angeles, Murray originally was an Oregon commitment. After spending his redshirt season at Weber State, he played in 2009 at Mount San Antonio College, where he was a member of the national junior college national championship team. His two interceptions in the fourth quarter helped seal the national championship victory for the Mounties.

“Our coaching staff is excited about Malcolm’s future and he will be a great addition to our team in January,” OSU coach Mike Gundy said. “He’s a very bright, young man and should be an impact player for our defense during spring ball.”

Murray finished the 2009 season with 39 tackles, including 4.5 for losses. He had six interceptions for 132 yards and also produced seven pass deflections.

He chose the Cowboys over offers from Minnesota, Illinois, Kansas, Louisville, Nevada and Arizona.

His arrival will be critical for the Cowboys, who lose starting cornerbacks Perrish Cox and Terrance Anderson and starting free safety Lucien "The Punisher" Antoine from this season's team that will meet Mississippi Jan. 2 in the AT&T Cotton Bowl.
