Texas A&M freshman quarterback Kyler Murray intends to transfer to another program, according to local beat writer Billy Liucci, but the coaching staff is trying to persuade him to stay.
A five-star talent from Allen, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas, Murray appeared in eight games in 2015 and started three. He completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 686 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions while also running for 335 yards and a touchdown.
This isn’t good news for the Aggies at all, if the report is true. Murray would join Kyle Allen as Texas A&M quarterbacks from 2015 who have opted to transfer out of the program this year, leaving Jake Hubenak as the sole returning man at the position with game experience. Sure, Texas A&M has talented quarterbacks in Janson Moore and Kobe Miller on the roster too, but neither man is on the same level as Allen or Murray at this point.
Just why Murray has decided to leave the program is unknown, though it may have something to do with the fact that he is also an excellent baseball player. Maybe Kevin Sumlin has reservations about letting him play both sports?
