19. Kyler Murray Wins the Heisman after Signing MLB Contract

In June, Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray was drafted by the Oakland Athletics with the ninth overall pick in the MLB Draft.

Murray was able to work it out with the A’s that he would sign with them, as long as he can go back to school and start one season with the Sooners before embarking on his baseball career.

The only issue with this plan is that Murray was better at football than anyone expected.

Murray had an unbelievable year starting for the Sooners and was named the Heisman Trophy winner. Murray still has a chance to win a National Championship as Oklahoma is in the College Football Playoff.

After the playoffs, Murray will report to spring training with the Athletics and may also enter the NFL Draft.
