Kyler Murray, the number one dual-threat quarterback in the nation has committed to Texas A&M according to the player's twitter account.

Murray, from Allen, Texas is rated as the 23rd best overall player in the country and the fourth best in the state of Texas.

He tweeted earlier: "I'll be joining Coach Sumlin and The Texas A&M Aggies! #GigEm"

Should Murray follow through with the commitment and sign with the Aggies next year he could continue in the style of Johnny Manziel who brought an exciting mobile style of play to the quarterback position to college football.

Murray snubbed Oregon to commit at Texas A&M, which is precisely what Manziel did in 2010 out of Tivy, Texas.

Continuing on the Manziel trend, Murray is listed at 5'11" and 170 pounds a little undersized for a quarterback but that is a criticism which the former Aggies quarterback has had to overcome during the NFL draft process.

Murray has the support of Manziel however, who took time out of his busy OTA schedule with the Cleveland Browns to tweet at the new commit.

Manziel said:" Talked to little bro @TheKylerMurray last night and couldn't be happier for him. Welcome to the family my brother go ball this year! #GigEm"

The only thing that is yet to be determined is if Murray can live up to the results on the field that the Heisman winning Manziel produced so often.
