Report: Kyler Murray Cannot Transfer To SEC Schools, Texas A&M Opponents

Texas A&M lost another highly-rated quarterback Thursday afternoon, as former five-star signal-caller Kyler Murray decided to transfer after just one season in College Station. But barring an unforeseen circumstance, the Aggies won't have to deal with lining up against him in the future. Murray's release from the school, according to his family, bars him from transferring to another SEC school or a school on Texas A&M's schedule over the next four years.

ESPN's Gerry Hamilton reported the news. Murray reportedly had interest in Texas and Oregon before deciding on A&M last year. Neither of those schools would be banned in this circumstance.

Murray, who was also a top baseball prospect coming out of high school, could go the JUCO route and focus on hardball instead. It'll be interesting to see where he ends up.
