Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray is drawing on-field comparisons to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel.
Aggies offensive coordinator Jake Spavital called Murray a "special player" and went on to invoke memories of Manziel when he said, "he just turns and goes and makes something happen, very similar to how Johnny used to play." Murray and sophomore gunslinger Kyle Allen are both in play for the starting gig at A&M, though Allen has the upper-hand given his success from last season. Murray's the more dynamic runner and could see his share of plays even if he doesn't initially start, while Allen is more a prototypical pocket quarterback. Aug 12 - 3:41 PM

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin insinuated that sophomore QB Kyle Allen is indeed the favorite to be the starter, but indicated he might play two quarterbacks.

That might mean plans are in the works to get four-star 2015 recruit QB Kyler Murray on the field in sub-packages right out of the gate. "We’ve never started out that way. That doesn’t mean that we won’t," Sumlin said about playing two quarterbacks. "We’ll see where we are in fall. Kyle is confident right now and should be. … Kyler is a guy who all he’s done is won. It’s like anything else. It’s not like Kyler didn’t know Kyle Allen was the MVP of the bowl game. That didn’t stop him. He’s coming to compete, and that’s what makes both of those guys who they are." The Aggies open against a strong Arizona State squad, so we'd be a bit surprised if Murray pulls off the stunner to win starting QB duties. That said, it'd be silly not to get the dynamic athlete on the field in advantageous situations.

Beat writer Sam Khan definitely said Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray will not redshirt this season.

"Even if he's not QB1, he'll play," Khan wrote. Murray was widely considered a four or five-star recruit and reportedly debated between Texas and Texas A&M before choosing the Aggies. As always, fans will want the new recruits to play, but we expect Kyle Allen to win the job. At least initially.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin said he was never concerned that freshman QB Kyler Murray would spurn the Aggies for baseball.

Murray opted out of the MLB draft earlier this month even though he was ranked by some analysts as a top-30 prospect. Instead of reporting to a minor league camp, Murray decided to play football and baseball for the Aggies. The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder is a five-star football recruit who attended Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters. He's highly athletic and has a whip for an arm and has been called "The Next Johnny Football" for the past few years in high school. Murray will take on the promising Kyle Allen for the starting gig this summer.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyler Murray has opted out of the MLB draft and will play football and baseball for the Aggies instead of pursuing professional baseball out of high school.

This means Murray will be able to join the Aggies in the first summer session and compete for the starting job, which is currently being held by Kyle Allen. Murray was one of the nation's top recruits and chose Texas A&M over Texas and other programs.

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," 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.

Four-star QB recruit Kyler Murray tweeted his intention to stick with his commitment to Texas A&M for the 2015 season.

Murray scared the A&M faithful after recently taking an unofficial visit to Texas. "Texas A&M is where my heart is at," Murray said, whose father also played for the Aggies. Murray is considered a "dual-threat" quarterback and stands at 5'11/170 pounds.

Texas A&M true freshman Kyler Murray said he feels no pressure from being compared to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel.

"If anything, it's all cool. Johnny is Johnny and he does his thing. We do play similar and I can't deny that," Murray said. "But pressure? No, there's none of that going to A&M. Johnny left some big shoes to fill and they're going to miss him for sure and what he brought to the table." The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is a five-star recruit currently attending Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters. Murray has lightning fast feet and a whip for an arm, which is why he's been drawing "The Next Johnny Football" label since he was winning two state championships in high school.

Texas A&M true freshman Kyler Murray is drawing comparisons to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel, according to

Murray is an undersized, magician signal-caller with lightning-fast feet learning under Kevin Sumlin -- sound like anyone you know? The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is actually far more heralded than Manziel coming out of high school, as he's a five-star recruit who won a pair of state championships. Murray will attend Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters between July 5-10.

Five star QB recruit Kyler Murray, a member of the 2015 class, committed to Texas A&M.

Murray will obviously not be in College Station until next season, but multiple scouting services ranked him as the top recruit at his position. The "dual-threat" quarterback chose the Aggies over Auburn and Oregon. Texas A&M's recruiting has definitely taken a step forward since Kevin Sumlin arrived. We know the head coach just signed a new deal, but the NFL has already started calling for his services.
