COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M quarterback Kyler Murray has left the team and has been granted his release to transfer.

The highly touted freshman is the second Texas A&M quarterback to transfer from the school in a week after Kyle Allen left last Thursday.

The move leaves the Aggies in a difficult predicament for the Music City Bowl against Louisville on Dec. 30. Texas A&M has just one scholarship quarterback on its roster in Jake Hubenak, a junior college transfer from Blinn College who played sparingly this season.

Murray missed practice Wednesday and coach Kevin Sumlin said at the time that the quarterback was “going through some things and didn’t feel well.”
