Heisman Winner Murray Commits To Football
2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray (pictured) announced via his Twitter account on Monday that he is fully committing to football and getting ready for April's NFL Draft.
Murray's tweet from Monday:
He had been weighing his options as to whether he'd play football or baseball. He was the Oakland Athletics' first round selection (9th overall) in the 2018 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
But his Heisman Trophy-winning season with Oklahoma in 2018 (Over 4,000 yards passing, 42 TD's), and that he's projected as a first-round NFL Draft choice may have swayed his decision towards football.
He was scheduled to report to Oakland A's spring training camp later this week.
