Texas A&M Snags 5-Star QB Kyler Murray

The highly rated signal caller is heading to College Station.

Does your team have a lack of good options at quarterback? It could be due to Kevin Sumlin taking them all for himself at Texas A&M.

Consensus 5-star dual threat QB Kyler Murray committed to the Aggies today, giving A&M a formidable depth chart at the game's most crucial position. In 2013, A&M signed 4-star dual threat guy Kenny Hill, and he's being joined by 5-star pro-style QB Kyle Allen. Murray coming in makes the rich only get richer.

The position is open this year, with veteran Matt Joeckel having transferred to TCU. Murray coming in next year is more than an adequate insurance policy should the loser of this year's battle decide to transfer after the season.

Johnny Manziel may be the highest profile alumnus of the Sumlin school of quarterbacking, but he has a pretty impressive history in grooming players at the position. Look for A&M to continue signing big time players at the spot for as long as he's the boss.
