Murray has finally made up his mind.
Over the last few weeks, Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray has had a huge decision to make: play football or stick to baseball? Of course, Murray was drafted and signed by the Oakland Athletics in the MLB but Murray has the potential to be a very high pick in the upcoming NFL Draft on April 25th. While Murray was constantly dodging the issue at hand, today, the former Oklahoma Sooner took to Twitter to release a statement where he made it clear that he will be pursuing football as a career.
"Moving forward, I am firmly and fully committing my life to becoming an NFL quarterback. Football has been my love and passion my entire life. I was raised to play QB, and I very much look forward to dedicating 100% of myself to being the best QB possible and winning NFL championships. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming NFL workouts and interviews. I eagerly await the opportunity to continue to prove the NFL decision makers that I am the franchise QB in this draft."
Based on Murray's answer, he is all in on the NFL, which spells bad news for the Athletics who will be losing out on a talented baseball player. Only time will tell who Murray will be drafted by and try to build a career with.
What do you think of his decision?
