Four-star quarterback Maalik Murphy’s high school career may have come to an abrupt end on Friday night.
The Junipero Serra star went down with an upper body injury in the first half against Warren and was unable to return to the contest. Serra eventually fell to Warren, 14-0. Their overall record is now 1-3 on the season.
Reports originally stated that it was a pectoral injury, but OrangeBloods Jason Suchomel confirmed on Saturday that Murphy is being evaluated for a right clavicle injury.
Murphy was on the sidelines in the second half and was not wearing a sling, which is a positive sign in regards to the severity of the injury.
#Hookem QB commit Maalik Murphy tells me he suffered a right clavicle injury in last night's game. Happened early and he was unable to return to action. He's getting it evaluated right now.

Murphy is rated the No. 9 quarterback prospect for the 2022 cycle and is one of Texas’ highest rated commits in the class. He is physically gifted and has a ton of upside, but he needs the reps and experience in order to take his game to another level.
Longhorns Wire will provide an update on Murphy’s injury as it becomes available.
