Kyler Murray says he's fully committed to being an National Football League quarterback

"I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming National Football League workouts and interviews", added Murray. "Kyler Murray would make a lot of sense in that situation given that Miami loved Baker Mayfield previous year". "Things have certainly changed since the draft", Beane said.

The Heisman Trophy victor has been pushed toward football after an incredible junior season in which he threw for 4,361 passing yards and 42 touchdowns for Oklahoma.

There will always be kids who choose baseball, either because they love it the most or because their talents on the diamond outstrip their skills on the gridiron or basketball court.

At the end of the college football season, he talked about pursuing both sports simultaneously.

Oklahoma Sooners star quarterback Kyler Murray has officially chose to focus on football going forward, leaving nearly $5 million on the table from the Oakland Athletics who drafted him 9th overall in the 2018 MLB Draft. You can't blame the league for that, but it does represent how precarious baseball's position on the media map is, as MLB fights the NFL and National Basketball Association for the eyeballs and dollars of fans. "To say somebody could or couldn't, I'm not here to say that".

Murray, who attends the University of Oklahoma, announced his decision in a Twitter post just four days before he was scheduled to report to the A's spring training program.

It is being reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan that Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money back to the A's. He already received $1.5 million of his signing bonus and was to receive an additional $3.16 million on March 1. He is expected to be a first-round pick in this year's National Football League draft, and this commitment will make it more likely that teams will be willing to commit an early selection to securing his services.

Murray is not a carbon copy of Mayfield by any means, but like Mayfield, Murray has the "it" factor and understands how to operate an offense efficiently and has the wherewithal to go off-script when necessary and make big plays.
