Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray drafted ninth by A’s, plans to play football

Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley made it clear over the last few days that he believed quarterback Kyler Murray would stay with the Sooners and play football this fall instead of immediately turning pro in baseball if he was drafted early. Turns out, Murray was drafted earlier than anyone expected ... and Riley was still right.

Though Murray was selected No. 9 overall in the 2018 MLB Draft by the Oakland A’s on Monday night, he confirmed a few hours later that he will play football for the Sooners this fall. Moreover, he noted that the A’s are OK with his plan. (It would be unfathomable for them not to be if they’re drafting him that high.) Murray had previously been mum regarding his future.
