Texas A&M quarterback Kyler Murray is officially transferring

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The bizarre saga of Texas A&M's Music City Bowl preparation rolls on with the news that freshman quarterback Kyler Murray is officially transferring.

Murray is the second former five-star Aggie quarterback to announce his transfer in the past week, joining sophomore Kyle Allen, who spent the majority of the 2015 and 2014 seasons as A&M's starter. Murray, who was considered the crown-jewel of Kevin Sumlin's 2015 recruiting class, completed 72 of 121 passes for 686 yards and five touchdowns with seven interceptions this season. He also rushed for 335 yards and another score.

Murray's unexpected departure leaves thirds-string quarterback Jake Hubenak as the only Aggie signal caller with game experience. Hubenak appeared in four games this season, completing 12 of 27 passes for 92 yards and one touchdown.
