It will be interesting to see how all that unfolds.”Melvin is watching more Oklahoma games than he expected, noting: “We are pulling hard for them.”“You’re reading before the season started is he going to be the starter there and the next thing you know he’s the Heisman Trophy winner and has a chance to win national championship,” Melvin said.Murray is represented by agent Scott Boras, and the A’s fully expect Murray to pursue baseball.“He’s one of the great athletes you’re going to see,” Melvin said. “How many guys are able to … drafted in the first round … Heisman Trophy winner? There aren’t many of those guys.
