Texas A&M QB recruit Kyler Murray could face a decision about entering Major League Baseball.
Murray is ranked by some analysts as a top-30 baseball draft prospect, and a few feel he will be a first-round draft pick in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft in June. "He has a chance to go in the first round," MLB.com and MLB Network’s Jim Callis said. "He’s the X-factor of this [year’s draft]. He can really run, put the bat on the ball, but there’s still some mystery about him." This figures to be a fascinating situation to follow. Murray, a four-star QB recruit, is a perfect fit for Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's spread offense. The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder doesn't project as an NFL QB, however, so he might have more long-term earning power on the diamond than on the gridiron. Murray is expected to remain at A&M to try his hand at both sports, but keep an eye on his quotes leading up to the baseball draft. "It just depends on how much money the baseball guys throw at him," Murray’s high school football coach, Tom Weatherford, said with a laugh. Feb 2 - 10:20 PM
