Will nation’s No. 2 dual threat QB pick TAMU next week? Maybe not


Kyle Allen may ultimately be the reason Texas A&M doesn’t land an Aggies legacy next week. Make that a five-star … No. 2 dual-threat QB in the nation … Aggies legacy.

It’s a little less than a week away, and Kyler Murray–son of former Texas A&M QB Kevin Murray–has to be wondering what to do. He is Oregon’s No. 1 choice in this year’s quarterback class. The Ducks are holding their breath, hoping that maybe the idea of battling Kyle Allen–who may have a chance to start this fall and replace Johnny Manziel–could ultimately lead Murray to go somewhere else. With Marcus Mariota holding down the starting job at Oregon in 2014, Murray knows he’d get a fair chance to win the starting job next fall.

Murray is also Texas A&M’s No. 1 choice in this class.

Next Wednesday, we’ll all find out, as Murray will announce his college choice. It’ll come down to either the pull of the in-state Aggies, or the pull of a better situation, depth wise. It’s the same situation Manziel was in during his senior year of 2010-11. He committed to the Ducks first, only to ultimately end up with the Aggies. Both schools definitely like to score points.

Murray is a five-star prospect and rated the No. 22 overall prospect in America by 247Sports.com’s composite ranking. His stature is similar to Manziel’s. He’s 5-foot-11, 170 pounds and a feisty winner, going 27-0 as a starter for Allen (Texas) and winning two state titles. During that span, he has passed for more than 5,000 yards and rushed for 2,500 yards, while accounting for 100 touchdowns.

  • Recruits should go to the school of their choice, period. No matter who is ahead of them, they’ll always have a chance their senior season. They can perfect their craft while waiting in the wings. Look at Gunner Kiel. He would probably be starting this year for LSU and have what, two years left to play? But instead, he didn’t have the chest to stick it out and is now in Cincinnati after making a pit stop at Notre Dame… The Mason kid at UGA is in a great position right now, and he’s doing the program a huge solid.
