Why It’s Panic Time at A&M With Kyler Murray Looking to Leave


Things are getting very interesting down in College Station, Texas. Recently the Aggies suffered a loss as quarterback Kyle Allen opted to transfer from the program, and now it is being reported that freshmen quarterback and Aggie legacy Kyler Murray is seriously considering leaving as well.

This is a bit mind blowing considering how important Murray was to Texas A&M’s recruiting class last year. On top of that, Murray’s father played his college football at Texas A&M, but now both parties seem to be butting heads with Kevin Sumlin.

Despite the transfer rumors swirling, Sumlin announced after practice today that Murray would be the starting quarterback for the bowl game.

It is a horrible look when the quarterback who started the most games for you the last two years abruptly transfers, and it is even worse when the freshmen backup has to be begged into staying so that the program doesn’t go into a tailspin.

Add this along with the whispers behind the scenes of how recruiting is going less than stellar and there being serious issues in the locker room and you got yourself a heck of problem is you are Kevin Sumlin.

Murray still has the baseball option in his back pocket and he doesn’t necessarily need Texas A&M if he wants to pursue that route. He could still pull the Bryce Harper and transfer to a junior college and then go pro from there if he chooses.

If he wants to still play football, then that’s where things get interesting as Texas A&M can make things difficult with restrictions on where he can land. Murray flirted with Texas, Oregon, and Oklahoma before he decided to stick with his decision on National Signing Day earlier this year.

If Murray follows through with his transfer, it’s safe to say that he won’t be the last. Kevin Sumlin is in a very interesting position as a head coach, and 2016 is a must win year.

I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to pan out, but if Murray ends up leaving this will leave the Aggies in a very interesting position, as they only have one other quarterback on scholarship.
