Most painful Texas A&M football transfers of all time: 1. Kyler Murray

If a player ever transfers away from your school and wins a Heisman at the other stop, it would pretty much just be irresponsible to not have him at the top of a list like this. It doesn't really matter what you think of the guy!

Murray was, for all intents and purposes, the greatest high school football player in the history of the state of Texas. Undefeated over a three-year career as a starter, Murray defeated illustrious programs year in and year out as a part of the Allen Eagles.

Imagine most Aggies' excitement, then, when he committed to A&M. This was the heir apparent to Johnny Manziel, coming to lead the Aggies to the national championship of which Johnny fell just short!

The problem was that the Aggies already had an established starting quarterback in the aforementioned Kyle Allen. It appears that the coaching staff did not exactly act prudently here, lacking in communication and promising things to both guys that were mutually exclusive.

By a certain point in the season, things had gotten really bad. Eventually, the two signal callers both decided to depart College Station, and the downfall of Sumlin began in earnest.

Murray would go on to win the Heisman at Oklahoma and become the #1 overall NFL draft pick. Would all of that still come to pass if he stayed at A&M? Maybe, maybe not. But he is, without a doubt, the player that gives the most Aggie fans heartburn to discuss.
