Murray Transfers to Oklahoma

Thursday, Dec. 24

"We're very happy to welcome Kyler to our program and we look forward to working with him," said head coach Bob Stoops, per Oklahoma assistant athletic director Mike Houck.

Texas Not Interested in Murray

Texas will not be recruiting Murray and are instead "focused" on future quarterback's Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger, according to Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods.com. 

Murray's Potential Makes Him Attractive Transfer Target 

The Aggies have already lost one starting quarterback, with Kyle Allen announcing his intention to transfer Dec. 10. 

Murray appeared in eight games for Texas A&M this season, making three starts and throwing five touchdowns with seven interceptions. The freshman star was one of the Aggies' most prized recruits last year, ranking as a 5-star prospect and the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in 247Sports' composite rankings. 

The situation at College Station is getting unusual to say the least. Sumlin was unable to settle on a starting quarterback late in the season, with Allen getting benched for two weeks following a loss at Mississippi on Oct. 24. 

Murray will give Stoops and Oklahoma a dynamic presence behind center once Baker Mayfield moves on. While some may be surprised by Murray's choice of school, there's no doubting the impact it could have on college football in the near future.
