Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray, WR Zach Farrar to Play Baseball

The Oklahoma baseball team announced their 2016 recruiting class on Wednesday, which included two OU football players.

Texas A&M transfer Kyler Murray might be best known to Sooner fans as the quarterback who announced his transfer to OU around the same time former OU quarterback and 2014 Sugar Bowl MVP Trevor Knight was announcing his transfer to A&M, but Murray didn’t come to OU for football alone.

He was a standout baseball player in high school with the potential to be drafted early in the 2015 MLB draft before deciding to play for the Aggies. Once he arrived at OU, Murray announced his intentions to play baseball for the Sooners while sitting out this football season due to his transfer.

Freshman wide receiver Zach Farrar, a four-star recruit out of Southlake, Texas, will also play baseball for the Sooners. Farrar was drafted as a center fielder in the 26th round of the MLB draft by the Chicago White Sox, but decided to stay with the Sooners instead. (More at OUDaily.com)
