Kyler Murray says he's committing to the NFL

Murray's accountants will be busy sorting things out now that he has announced his decision.

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray speaks during an NCAA college football media day on Thursday, Dec. 27, 2018, in Miami Gardens, Fla.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", Murray wrote.

Murray added that he has "started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming National Football League workouts and interviews".

However, Murray had a brilliant college football season in 2018, passing for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns for Oklahoma. "But there are some QB hungry teams who might be looking to move up in the draft order and Murray - albeit 5'9" or 5'10" - is a unique athlete and most prognosticators feel he will be a first-round pick come April along with Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State), Drew Lock (Missouri) and Daniel Jones (Duke).

On Monday, Murray tweeted that he is "committing to football".

Kyler Murray on September 8, 2018 in Norman, Oklahoma. He is now training for the NFL Draft in April and is set to participate in the league's upcoming scouting combine. Beyond that, Murray won't have to spend the next few years playing in largely empty minor league parks, nor will he spend the first two to three seasons of his career earning roughly the league minimum, as he'd have done as a pre-arbitration MLB player.

Murray made no mention of the A's or baseball in his statement. According to ESPN, the 2018 Heisman Trophy victor will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money the A's gave him in 2018.

Oakland drafted Murray with the ninth overall pick last June. Although the A's were hoping he'd choose baseball, they were increasingly pessimistic the longer his locker in their spring-training clubhouse sat empty.

France coach Jacques Brunel admitted it had been no contest and that England had beaten them up from the start. Come and referee a game yourself then you can let us all judge you then.

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. He is their QB of the now and the future, so the Green & White won't be in the Murray sweepstakes.
