Murray was chosen ninth overall by the Oakland Athletics in the MLB draft, and the A's are apparently OK with his decision to stick with football.
A's scouting director Eric Kubota said the team is supportive of Murray not playing any baseball until next spring.
"The risk of the football was, in our opinion, outweighed by the upside on the baseball field," Kubota said, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee. "We were totally on board with his desire to play quarterback at Oklahoma. Frankly, we're excited to be Oklahoma fans for 12 games."
