Oklahoma Fans Will Love What Baker Mayfield Said About Kyler Murray

Replacing Baker Mayfield of course won't be easy, but Oklahoma is lined up to have a pretty-talented QB step in behind center this fall. Former five-star recruit Kyler Murray will take over the Sooners' offense this season (assuming he doesn't leave for baseball, of course).

Mayfield is high on Murray - extremely, extremely high. The former Oklahoma star quarterback thinks his replacement will be better than he was.

Bleacher Report published a feature story on Murray earlier today and it includes a pretty awesome quote from Mayfield on his replacement.

From Matt Hayes:

"He's going to break all my records," reigning Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, a guy who has a few to break, told B/R recently of his projected successor. "He's that good."

Wow. That's high praise from a former Heisman Trophy winner.

As we said earlier, though, Murray's future in college football is not 100 percent certain. Leaving for the MLB is a possibility.

Murray is considered to be a potential first-round pick. Some outlets have him ranked as a top 25 prospect.

The MLB Draft is set to start at 7 p.m. E.T. It'll be televised on MLB Network.
