Texas’ best high school quarterback, Kyler Murray, made a lot of folks in the state sweat this week, but in the end it was always going to be the Aggies.
It came down to two schools for the Allen High School (TX) QB: the Texas A&M Aggies and the Oregon Ducks. Amazingly, even though his father played for the Aggies, it might have been Johnny Football who tipped the needle over the edge.
“Johnny, he paved the way for all the kids going to A&M now,” Murray said to Dallas Fort-Worth’s ABC affiliate. “He made A&M back to what A&M used to be.”
The upcoming senior still has a year left of high school, and he should have little trouble bringing home a third consecutive state title to the Eagles. It will be interesting to see if the young quarterback gets to start right away for the Aggies like Manziel did, but you can bet that Murray will be gunning for the starting role as soon as he arrives on campus.
“I don’t think waiting is in his repertoire or his mindset,” Kevin Murray said to ABC. “I don’t think waiting or sitting is part of his demeanor.”
We predicted Murray’s choice recently here at Rant Sports Prep, and I am pleased to say that we got this one right. My success rate is probably a little bit better on the basketball side of things, but I am always willing to throw my guesses out for the football recruits as well. Thanks as always for reading.
