Reports surfaced Thursday that Texas A&M freshman quarterback Kyler Murray requested to transfer from the school.
Many media pundits gave their take on the situation and some of Murray’s former teammates responded to the news. Here’s some of the reaction from Twitter:
One of the most interesting reactions came from Texas A&M offensive lineman German Ifedi, who claimed Murray’s pompous nature was a reason he didn’t fit at A&M.
Entitlement is such a silly beast. Welcome to 2015.

ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit questioned what was happening at Texas A&M after two quarterbacks transferred within the past week.
What is the deal down at College Station?…Murray 2nd QB to leave A&M in the last week? Things going sideways currently.

A couple of reports surfaced that Texas and Oklahoma were in the running for Murray’s services.
That means Kyler Murray will be free to transfer to Oklahoma, Oregon or Texas, all places he considered in initial recruitment.

What I'm hearing: TX and OU are on Kyler Murray's list of options. A&M has said it would block those 2. Don't rule out just playing baseball

Murray is a talented baseball player and could elect to attend junior college to give himself an opportunity at next year’s MLB Draft.
If Kyler Murray wants to play MLB, quickest way is to go JUCO this year. Would then be eligible for draft in June.
