The last few days, Texas A&M transfer Kyler Murray has been playing the role of Houston QB Greg Ward Jr. for the Oklahoma scout team. "Kyler's done a great job," OU coach Bob Stoops said. "Running around, making plays, (we've been) getting to see that special explosiveness he has." Murray was the nation's No. 1 dual-threat QB recruit for the class of 2015.
