It didn’t take Texas A&M transfer Kyler Murray long to find a new school, as it was announced today by the University of Oklahoma that Murray will be a Sooner.

Murray was the backup for Kyle Allen at Texas A&M but ended up seeing a good chunk of playing time in 2015 due to injuries to Allen. Ironically enough, Allen announced his transfer from Oklahoma just a few days before Murray announced his.

It was a quarterback exodus that had some calling for A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin to find himself on the hot seat, and there were reports that that would suggest he actually was. Of course, those reports have been refuted.

Either way, Murray heading to Oklahoma is an interesting move, especially considering the fact that Oklahoma’s starting quarterback, Baker Mayfield, will be a senior next season. That won’t matter much to Murray because he’ll have to sit out a season due to transfer rules, but hypothetically he’ll be able compete for a vacant starting job heading into the 2017 season.

Playing in eight games in 2015, Murray threw for 686 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed 53 times for 335 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.3 yards per rush.

His progress with the Sooner will definitely be worth keeping an eye on.
