Mufaro Murinda 6’7 190 Wing has decided to attend Coppin State University on a full Division I scholarship. Coppin State University is a member of the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and is located in Baltimore, Maryland. Mufaro had a solid sophomore season for the Chaffey Hustlin’ Panthers. He had 15 games scoring in double figures with a high game of 29 points vs #1 seed Mt. San Antonio College. In that high profile game, Murinda was 8-16 from the field, 4-7 from the three, 9-10 from the line and had 8 rebounds.
CHP Head Coach Jeff Klein says,” We are so proud of Mufaro. He completed his AA degree at Chaffey College finishing his last semester with straight A’s. On the court, he is a very long, athletic confident scorer. At 6’7, it is near impossible to alter his three point shot, and his athleticism gets him to the rack easily. His game translates well to the D1 level.” Head Coach Michael Grant is entering his 2nd season at the helm of the Eagles. Coach Grant says,”We couldn’t be more excited to be adding Mufaro with our last scholarship to the Coppin State family. He fits what we want as a young man and student–athlete. He also fits the style of play we have in his ability to defend multiple positions and shoot the 3. We feel he will have a very successful 2 year career at Coppin State.”
