This week, his agent Scott Bo­ras told the San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle that Mur­ray has “ev­ery in­ten­tion of ful­fill­ing his agree­ment with the A's, and he's grate­ful he has had the chance to pur­sue his col­lege goals. He will be in spring train­ing with the A's.”

Said Mur­ray: “I have no com­ment. I'm just wor­ried about play­ing foot­ball right now. But yes, as of right now, I mean, my fu­ture's al­ready kind of de­cided as of right now.”

Mur­ray said he's dreamed about win­ning the Heis­man Tro­phy. On Satur­day, he'll find out if that will come true.

“I al­ways knew once I got my chance here that I felt like I could do pretty spe­cial things with coach (Lin­coln) Ri­ley and the ath­letes we have on of­fense, O-line, the best in the coun­try, run­ning backs year in and year out, and then re­ceivers, ob­vi­ously we've got re­ceivers,” Mur­ray said. “So yeah, I'm con­fi­dent in my­self, I've got great peo­ple around me, great fam­ily, great sup­port sys­tem. And at the same time, it's not easy to go out and (do what we do) ev­ery Satur­day. It's not easy. It takes a lot of work, it takes a lot of at­ten­tion to de­tail and sac­ri­fice. And with all that be­ing said, I def­i­nitely ex­pected to be here.

“I've been play­ing this game my whole life. I've been pretty good at it. And I think if you're not con­fi­dent in your­self, then no­body else is gonna be con­fi­dent in your­self.”
