Oklahoma soon-to-be redshirt freshman QB Kyler Murray plans to join the Sooners baseball team in the spring of 2017.
In his first media session since joining Oklahoma from Texas A&M, Murray told reporters he missed playing baseball. Many believe his pro projection is much better as a baseball player and Murray could have been a first-round pick in the MLB Draft if he elected to go that route. Murray will be eligible to practice with the football team this season but not play until 2017, when he will compete for the starting gig. Mar 28 - 8:59 AM

It's unclear if Oklahoma freshman QB Kyler Murray will play baseball at the school.

Murray planned on playing baseball at Texas A&M this spring prior to transferring to Oklahoma. "We haven’t gotten there yet," OU football coach Bob Stoops said earlier this month. "We’re gonna get him in here. First things first, let’s get him on the football team." The former five-star quarterback prospect will compete for the starting job in 2017. In three starts and eight games total with the Aggies, Murray completed 59.5 percent of his attempts for 686 yards and a 5/7 TD/INT rate while rushing for 335 yards.

Former Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray has signed with Oklahoma.

Murray will join Oklahoma for the spring semester. The Sooners recruited Murray out of high school, but Kyler chose Texas A&M and started games during his first season. He will have to sit out the 2016 season to satisfy transfer regulations, but Oklahoma has experience in this area, as current starter Baker Mayfield transferred from Texas Tech. Mayfield apparently wowed coaches during practices while he was redshirting, and the obvious conclusion is that Murray will eventually start when Mayfield leaves.

Texas is not interested in Texas A&M freshman transfer QB Kyler Murray, according to beat writer Anwar Richardson.

"UT is focused on future QBs Shane Buechele & Sam Ehlinger," Richardson tweeted. That certainly doesn't bode well for freshman quarterback Jerrod Heard, either. Murray would not be eligible to play until 2017 if he transferred to an FBS program. Many expect him to pursue baseball over football.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray cannot transfer to any SEC program or Texas A&M opponent over the next four seasons.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman notes many expect Murray to pursue baseball rather than football. Since Murray elected to bypass the MLB after high school, he must wait multiple years to enter the draft. Murray could pursue both sports wherever he ends up, as numerous prospects have done the same.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray tweeted a goodbye message to the school and its fans.

"I wish nothing but the best to all my guys in that locker room," Murray tweeted. He has said that his decision to transfer is final. The Aggies do not appear terribly devastated that he's leaving. Lauded offensive lineman Germain Ifedi tweeted this on Thursday: "Entitlement is such a silly beast. Welcome to 2015."

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray has requested a transfer from the school and his decision is "final," according to beat writer Billy Liucci.

Texas A&M is basically without a quarterback. Murray follows Kyle Allen out the door, and leaves everyone wondering what Kevin Sumlin will do at the position for next season. Sumlin has showed he is not afraid to switch up his No. 1 quarterback, and perhaps that is the reason for these quarterbacks deciding to leave. Many will suggest Oklahoma's Trevor Knight to A&M as a graduate transfer.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray is strongly considering transferring to another program, according beat writer Billy Liucci.

This is a shocker after Kyle Allen announced his intention to transfer. "Per multiple sources, Kyler Murray's intention as of one hour ago and following a meeting with Kevin Sumlin was to transfer from A&M," Liucci tweeted, adding since then A&M has attempted to change Murray's mind and keep him with the Aggies. We aren't sure what is happening at Texas A&M for both starting quarterbacks to want to transfer. Murray's best pro potential might be in baseball, but he was expected to be the school's No. 1 quarterback.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin won't announce his starting quarterback until right before kickoff of Saturday's tilt against Vanderbilt.

It's a night game, so go ahead and forget about Aggie quarterbacks in DFS this week (if you hadn't already; Vandy plays some mean defense). Kyler Murray is coming off a terrible two-pick showing against mighty Western Carolina. Fans are pining for Kyle Allen -- who we last saw throwing pick-sixes like Mardi Gras beads -- to get his old job back. About that: Two weeks ago versus Auburn, Murray left the game after taking a shot to the head. He was replaced not by Allen, but Jake Hubenak, who has to be wondering why everybody refuses to include him when discussing this mess of a QB carousel.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray completed 22-of-39 passes for 191 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 41-17 win over Western Carolina.

Entering the weekend, Murray was questionable with a head injury suffered against Auburn. He was cleared to play, though, ultimately throwing a season-high three touchdown passes. The dual-threat freshman also rushed for 50 yards on seven carries. While he holds an unimpressive 4/5 TD/INT ratio in three starts since taking over for the ineffective Kyle Allen, the Aggies have won two of those three games. They'll finish out the 2015 regular season with road contests against Vanderbilt and LSU.

Texas A&M freshman Kyler Murray will start at QB against Western Carolina if cleared (head injury).

Murray exited last week's loss to Auburn after being hit in the head and was replaced by Jake Hubenak, not former starter Kyle Allen. Murray is so much fun to watch, but the school might not need him against Western Carolina. Texas A&M faces Vanderbilt and LSU to end the regular season.

Last Saturday, Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray became the second SEC quarterback in the past 20 years to post a "100/100" game.

Cam Newton was unsurprisingly the other. The 5-foot-11, 178-pound Murray threw for 223 yards and ran for another 156 against South Carolina. "Although Murray's substandard physical dimensions will turn off some scouts, evaluators interested in acquiring winners should keep an eye on the diminutive playmaker based on his knack for guiding his team to the winner's circle at every level," wrote NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks. Don't necessarily assume Murray is banned from playing QB in the NFL because of his size. He has natural arm talent and is a former first-round caliber baseball prospect (he withdrew his name from the MLB draft). Murray will have to make great strides as a thrower -- ala Russell Wilson -- not to get moved off the position, however.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray attempted just four passes of longer than 10 yards in Saturday's 35-28 win over South Carolina.

Murray ultimately ended Saturday's contest with 233 yards passing and a touchdown. While he wasn't wowing with aerial pyrotechnics, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound freshman was an absolute tear on the ground, rushing for 156 yards. He offers the Aggies a running dimension that the more pocket-bound Kyle Allen simply doesn't. Of course, Allen's a more accomplished passer, so there's a bit of a give and take here. HC Kevin Sumlin has yet to announce the starter for Saturday's upcoming home date with Auburn, but there's little reason to believe that Murray will surrender the job this week after he snapped Texas A&M's two-game losing streak.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray completed 20 of 26 attempts for 223 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-28 win over South Carolina, Murray's first start of his career.

As expected, Murray was electric once getting into the open field. He glides when away from the pocket, leaving defenders stuck in mud and going against the grain of oncoming tacklers. That mobility resulted in another score and 156 rushing yards. Texas A&M certainly has a type at quarterback, because Murray flashes a similar skill set to Johnny Manziel with his mobility, just like everyone said.

Texas A&M named freshman Kyler Murray starting QB, unseating sophomore Kyle Allen.

Allen started all seven games thus far, leading the Aggies to a 5-2 record, but both losses occurred in the last two games. Murray was a highly prized recruit and has been inserted in certain packages, specifically highlighting his mobility. This is the second straight season that Texas A&M has made a quarterback switch half way through the year, and many would argue it paid off last season.
