Four-star quarterback Kyler Murray remains committed to Texas A&M

Friday January 30th, 2015

Kyler Murray, who is one of nation highest ranked dual threat quarterbacks, says he will stay committed to Texas A&M after taking an unofficial visit to Texas.

Murray, who is listed at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, plans on signing his letter of intent with the Aggies next Wednesday. Murray was visited at home by Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital on Thursday before he make his final decision.

"Texas A&M is where my heart is at," Murray said, according to "Coach [Charlie] Strong and Texas is a great opportunity, but I felt that A&M was the place for me. Not because of my dad having played there, but just the right place for me."
