The buzz: The 22-year-old hit .319 with seven home runs, 32 RBIs, 21 walks and 40 strikeouts in 54 games for the Wolfpack as a senior in 2021. Murr played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Des Moines Area Community College before transferring to N.C. State ahead of 2020, where he played a shortened 17-game season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, he played 53 games at first base and one game in left field. The Tigers seem willing to test him as a full-time outfielder in the minor leagues.
