NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma says former Texas A&M quarterback Kyler Murray has signed a financial aid agreement to join the Sooners.

The school said Thursday that Murray will join the team during the 2016 spring semester. He will have to sit out next season because of transfer rules.

Murray played eight games as a freshman at Texas A&M this season, with three starts. He totaled 1,021 yards of total offense and completed 60 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Murray is the second quarterback to leave Texas A&M following the end of the regular season. Days before Murray announced he was leaving, Kyle Allen revealed he would be transferring.

The quarterback shakeup played a part in our college football picks segment during The Rant Sunday night. Watch the video above to hear the guys' thoughts on Texas A&M vs Louisville in the Music City Bowl.
