Dual-Sport Athlete Kyler Murray Wants To Gamble On One More Year Of College Football:

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray was considered a fringe first-round baseball prospect a month ago, but few people would have guessed that he'd go to the Oakland A's in the top 10 of Monday's draft, since Murray is planning to play football for the Sooners in the fall. The Athletics clearly decided that the 20-year-old was too enticing of a prospect to pass on.

Murray has been very clear about his desire to play football, and he's under no obligation to sign with the A's and ditch his team. OU coach Lincoln Riley said he expects Murray to compete for the quarterback job, and Murray's been waiting to lead the Sooners since he transferred to OU from Texas A&M in 2015, then backed up Baker Mayfield, who went to the NFL this year. Murray played in seven football games last season, throwing for 349 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 142 yard on 14 carries, and he is the favorite to win the QB job over Austin Kendall. Perhaps because of his immense potential as a dual threat, Oklahoma has the best early odds to win the Big 12. As a former five-star recruit who sat out the 2016 season then played backup for a year, Murray is probably thrilled with the prospect of leading a potential College Football Playoff team. o-gamble-on-one-1826572862
