Kyler Murray on transition to college, staying humble and more

Reigning Gatorade Male Athlete of the Year and Texas A&M Aggies starting quarterback Kyler Murray caught up with Campus Sports to discuss the challenges he could face making the transition to college and what keeps him grounded with all of the media attention.

Murray, who has been on campus since June 1, made a quick rise to the top as the Aggies star quarterback and his maturity shows why he has been able to handle the pressure.

“Right now, on campus, I’ve been there since June 1 and haven’t gone out once,” Murray said. “I’m coming in with the mindset that it’s time to take my game to the next level ’cause I know it won’t be easy in the SEC. I’m more focused than ever. I accomplished a lot of things in high school, but a lot of people don’t me. It doesn’t bother me, though; it’s whatever. It’s part of it.

“I’m trying to be great. I’m trying to be the best at what I do; going out and turning up is not going to help me get there, so right now I’m just taking it easy, chilling out and trying to better myself on and off the field.”
