Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley said there are "no assumptions" as to who will be the starting quarterback for the Sooners in 2018.
Most -- if not all -- have assumed that Kyler Murray will be the starter who takes over for Baker Mayfield in 2018. Be it coachspeak or not, it sounds like there might just be a battle. In addition to Murray, the Sooners also have Austin Kendall, a former four-star recruit who doesn't have Murray's speed, but might be a more accurate passer as a pro-style quarterback. We'd certainly bet on Murray to win the job, but Kendall could at least earn some playing time for the Sooners in 2018, and maybe push the athlete for the starting job. Mar 8 - 2:50 PM

Baker Mayfield called Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray "the best athlete in the country."

"They're in great hands," Mayfield said of Sooners fans. "They have the best coach in the country. Kyler is the best athlete in the country. They're going to be just fine." With Mayfield off to the NFL and the uber-athletic Murray set to start in 2018, Sooners HC Lincoln Riley is expected to incorporate more of a zone-read look as he builds the offense around Murray and running back Rodney Anderson. The 5-foot-10, 192-pound Murray is also a tremendous baseball player. He was the first athlete to play in both the Under Armour All-America football and baseball national high school all-star games.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore QB Kyler Murray will serve as backup to redshirt senior Baker Mayfield this season.

Murray, who transferred over from Texas A&M in the winter of 2015, beat out sophomore Austin Kendall for backup duties. He could potentially see some package-specific work during the season given his ability to tuck and run -- Mayfield has called him the fastest player on the team -- but won't be seeing extensive reps this season unless injury strikes.

Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield called redshirt sophomore QB Kyler Murray "the fastest player on the team."

Murray, who transferred over to Oklahoma from Texas A&M in December of 2015, sat out the past season to satisfy NCAA regulations. He's eligible, now. With Mayfield already having the starting job locked down, Murray and sophomore Austin Kendall are battling it out in camp for backup honors.

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.

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.
