Murray, originally from the Dallas area, came to College Station as a highly touted dual-threat quarterback and appeared in eight games, starting three. He completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 686 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions while also adding 335 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He is the second Texas A&M quarterback in a week to announce a transfer, joining last year’s primary starter Kyle Allen.

Murray’s transfer means that coach Kevin Sumlin will almost certainly roll with JUCO transfer Jake Hubenak at quarterback for the team’s Music City Bowl matchup against Louisville in Nashville on the 30th.

Just why Murray decided to transfer is unclear, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates out of College Station!
