Texas A&M gives Murray the rare chance of staying inside his native state and competing in the SEC. The Aggies are led by head coach Kevin Sumlin, who is one of the game's best offensive minds.
Sumlin has stocked the roster with terrific talent and speed, plus the program takes advantage of its great facilities. The fans also come to games in droves.
A lot of points are scored in College Station, and Texas A&M is perhaps the sexiest program among today's recruits. It was also home to Murray's father, Kevin, who once played quarterback for the Aggies, says 247Sports.
Texas A&M could start true freshman quarterback Kyle Allen this fall. That means it's unlikely Murray would start in College Station for at least two seasons when he arrives. Should Murray choose to switch to receiver, the Aggies' stacked depth chart at that position could make it tough for him to get on the field there as well.
