Murray commits to football, making MWL future unlikely

Oklahoma two-sport star Kyler Murray fully committed to a future playing football instead of baseball Monday, posting this statement on Twitter:

Murray was selected ninth-overall by the Oakland Athletics in last June’s MLB draft, which put him in line to possibly play for the Beloit Snappers in the Midwest League if he decided to pursue baseball. He subsequently won the Heisman Trophy, putting him in a good position to be picked in the first round of the NFL draft — a high-pick position that became even more likely with his announced commitment to football.

Although it seems unlikely right now, Murray certainly could still end up playing baseball if he doesn’t pan out in the NFL or somehow the A’s lure him away from football — a scenario I’m filing under “So you’re saying there’s a chance…”
