ESPN reports that the summit is happening just one day before the deadline to declare for the NFL draft.

Murray received a $4.66 million signing bonus in 2018 after he was chosen by the Athletics with the ninth pick in the draft. Murray was allowed to play one last season of college football. He won the Heisman Trophy.
