No, Kyler Murray hasn't flipped his commitment from Texas A&M to Texas.
Murray posted a masterful piece of trolling to his Twitter account earlier in the week. The troll? Simply a picture of a Texas jersey with no caption.
The picture was taken during an unofficial visit to Texas. Thursday, he wore an orange tie with his suit. But the picture looks like it was more a poke at Texas than a poke at the Aggies. From the Dallas Morning News:
Murray has committed to Texas A&M but caused a stir in recruiting circles Wednesday by taking an unofficial visit to Texas and tweeting a photo of a UT jersey that had the number he wore at Allen. On Thursday, he was wearing an orange tie, but he said it’s not a sign of anything.
“It goes with brown,” he said.
Murray said that at this point, he’s “still committed to A&M.”
Murray is a four-star quarterback according to Rivals and went undefeated as a starting quarterback in high school. Allen High School won a Texas state title in December to cap Murray's 42-0 record as a starter. He was also named the Gatorade High School Player of the Year.
While the quarterback situation at Texas is more favorable for Murray, there's less of a logjam ahead of him at Texas A&M now too with the departure of Kenny Hill. If he doesn't challenge Kyle Allen for the starting job (provided he still signs with A&M), he'll likely be the No. 2 quarterback.
