One of college football's biggest stars looks like he's going pro in a different sport.
Even if he wins the Heisman.
According to agent Scott Boras, the AP College Football Player of the Year and Heisman Trophy favorite Kyler Murray will fulfill his commitment to the Oakland Athletics and attend spring training for the team that selected him ninth overall in the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft.
However, it seems unlikely that he will go that route, given the fact that he would have to pay out his hefty $4.66 million signing bonus in full to the Athletics should he opt out of his deal with them.
Murray is listed as the No. 4 prospect in the Athletics' system and played incredibly well in his most recent season with Oklahoma's baseball team, hitting 10 home runs while swiping 10 bases.
Given the outrageous amount of money that baseball players have the potential to earn and the dangers of playing football at any level, Murray is making the right choice for his career and health by pursuing a career in Major League Baseball.
And who knows? If it turns out that he can't cut it in the minor leagues, his Plan B does not look too bad.
