    Is Kyler Murray really going to leave Texas A&M?

    According to multiple sources, and tweeted out Wednesday afternoon, the Aggies’ 2015 prize quarterback recruit is set to be the second top quarterback to leave the program.


    Former No. 1 quarterback recruit Kyle Allen announced last week he was transferring, now rumored to potentially be Tom Herman’s starter in two years at Houston. But the thought was that Allen was leaving because Murray was going to be the main man for the Aggies – Murray is more Manziel-like, while Allen is more of a pure pro-style passer. Now, Murray leaving – if it really does happen – would be a true stunner for an A&M program that was becoming a factory for bringing in top quarterbacks.

    Oregon would be the dream fit for Murray, with the speed, athleticism, and ability to become a statistical superstar in the sped up Duck attack. Ohio State would be another perfect landing spot as Urban Meyer’s next Braxton Miller/J.T. Barrett dual-threat playmaker. That’s how good Murray is – if he leaves, he could go anywhere he chooses to become someone’s 2017 starter.

    There’s also the baseball angle. With all the money being out right now in the baseball world, could Murray – a superstar baseball prospect – decide that his future on the diamond might be the bigger play? Even though he was a Texas high school football legend – going 42-0 with three straight state championships – he’s not an NFL quarterback and would likely be more of a Denard Robinson or slot receiver at the next level. Before choosing football, he was considered one of the 50 best baseball prospects as a middle infielder.

    Meanwhile, speculation kicks into overdrive about whether or not head coach Kevin Sumlin might be leaving for the NFL. With as many as ten possible NFL head coaching jobs to fill, Sumlin will be high on the priority list. But that’s just a rumor – Murray and Allen would’ve have wanted to transfer based on that.

    So who’s up next for A&M?

    At the moment, the loss of Murray leaves Jake Hubenak the main quarterback option against Louisville in the Music City Bowl. The 6-3, 195-pound sophomore is a pro-style JUCO transfer who threw for over 4,000 yards with 47 touchdowns at Blinn Junior College. This year he filled in at times completing 12-of-27 passes for 92 yards and a score.
