Oklahoma's football team is still three months away from playing a regular season game, but the fate of the Sooners' 2018 campaign might be riding on what happens on this June evening. That might seem hyperbolic, but it really isn't.
The 2018 MLB Draft begins tonight. Oklahoma's quarterback, Kyler Murray, is a potential first-round pick.
Murray's coach, Lincoln Riley, has said that his quarterback will be with the team this summer. He will not be playing baseball, he says.
The quarterback is going to have a decision to make, though. And, depending on what happens tonight, it could be an extremely difficult one.
If an MLB team falls in love with Murray and takes him somewhere in the first round, offering him a seven-figure signing bonus, is he really going to opt to return to college football?
We're going to see.
The MLB Draft starts at 7 p.m. E.T. It will be televised on the MLB Network.
