Murray is the son of Kevin Murray, who played quarterback for Texas A&M from 1983 to 1986, according to Mike Graham of The Dallas Morning News.
Murray's family connection doesn't solely push the Aggies over the top, but it's never a bad thing in recruiting when a prospect's father played for a nearby top program. Many fathers would love to see their sons play at the same school they attended.
Graham wrote on Jan. 30: "Texas A&M has the family edge. Murray’s father, Kevin Murray, played for the Aggies from 1983 through 1986 before a brief professional career and becoming a quarterback’s coach, but Kevin Murray has taken a hands off approach when it comes to Kyler Murray’s recruitment."
