Murray announced his decision to exclusively concentrate on the gridiron Monday on Twitter.

Former star Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has officially made a decision on his future, announcing whether he'll be pursuing a career in the Major League Baseball or the NFL.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", Murray wrote. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming workouts and interviews.

But Murray was as good as any player in college football last season, throwing for 4,631 yards, rushing for 1,001 yards and amassing 54 total touchdowns. After Oklahoma lost to Alabama in the Orange Bowl, Murray subsequently declared for the National Football League draft while both the A's and MLB tried frantically to keep him on the baseball path.

Earlier on Monday, A's president Billy Beane said the situation around Murray was still uncertain. Oakland does retain Murray's rights and have put him on the restricted list, but the A's will not get a compensatory draft pick in this year's draft.

It is being reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan that Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money back to the A's.

In exchange for a more immediate payday and a quicker path to competing at his sport's highest level, of course, Murray will play a much more physically demanding game that comes with a heightened risk of both short- and long-term injury.

The 5-foot-10 Murray was the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. Still Forst said, "We'll focus on what we need to do to make sure that if he comes back to baseball at some point, he comes back with the A's".

Baker Mayfield, who was awarded the same hardware in 2017, was taken with the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Murray has already begun training in preparation for April's NFL Draft, his statement said. And none of that is to knock Murray, but only to acknowledge how brutally hard it is to play professional baseball-likely another factor in his choice to pick the NFL.
