Top QB Recruit Kyler Murray Remains Committed to Aggies

Gatorade National Player of the Year and consensus number one quarterback recruit Kyler Murray will remain committed to Texas A&M. Murray had spent the past couple of weeks reevaluating his original decision, but decided it was in his best interests to remain with the program. Murray has a chance to come in and contribute right away for the Aggies, who had their fair share of turmoil at the position in 2014.

“Texas A&M is where my heart is at,” Murray said late Thursday night. “Coach [Charlie] Strong and Texas is a great opportunity, but I felt that A&M was the place for me. Not because of my dad having played there, but just the right place for me.”

Murray took an unofficial visit to Texas about nine days ago stressing the Aggies fan base. Thursday night, however, head coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Jake Spavital visited Murray’s home and solidified his commitment to the program. Now, the entire fan base can breathe a collective sigh of relief following the reassurance as Murray will sign his official letter of intent next Wednesday in front of his Allen High friends and family.

“It went well,” Murray said. “All my questions were answered. I just can’t wait to get this all over with and get back to playing ball.”

The five star recruit has one of the best high school careers in recent memory, throwing for a miraculous 10,388 yards and 117 touchdowns through the air adding 4,093 yards and 69 touchdowns on the ground. Murray is one of the most gifted athletes to enter college and could be a potential first round pick in baseball if he so chooses.  Murray never lost a high school game, going a perfect 42-0, and that winning mentality could be essential if he hopes to improve the Aggies from their 2014 8-5 record.
