Kyler Murray: ‘I am fully committing my life to becoming an NFL QB’

in Analysis/News

It’s official. We can finally begin calling Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray a full-time football player.

The Heisman Trophy winner (and first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics) announced his intentions to commit to football via Twitter Monday.

Murray’s commitment to the NFL will silence concerns about him fleeing for baseball and will make the 2019 NFL scouting combine even more interesting from a strictly football perspective.

Murray was due to report to the Athletics for spring training on Feb. 15. With the scouting combine coming only two weeks after that, he had no choice but to erase any doubt about his future.

Murray is in the mix to be the first quarterback selected in April and with a strong showing at the scouting combine and his pro day, he could sneak into the top five overall.
