OutfielderA Kyler Murray, the Aa€™s top pick in last weeka€™s draft, officially will sign with the team Friday and will be introduced at the Coliseum the same day, multiple sources told The Chronicle.

As part of the agreement, Murray will play just one more year of football at Oklahoma, one source said. Murray, who is projected to be Heisman Trophy winnerA Baker Mayfielda€™s successor at quarterback, has two years of football eligibility left, but under his deal with Oakland, he will forgo his final season. He will report to the Aa€™s complex in Mesa, Ariz., next spring to begin his full-time baseball career.

Murray, 20, signed for right around the draft-slot value for the ninth overall pick, about $4.6 million.

Both the Aa€™s and Murray have insurance in the event that Murray is severely injured playing football this season.
