It takes a special athlete to play two sports past high school. It takes a one-of-a-kind athlete to excel at both.

Kyler Murray burst out of Baker Mayfield's shadow, finishing his own Heisman season with more total yards and touchdowns than his predecessor. Even before he proved to be an elite college player, he was already tabbed as a super talented baseball player. He was selected by the Oakland Athletics with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft and is being compared to baseball great Ricky Henderson for his power and speed.

Zion Williamson is great, but he doesn't compare to the two-sport savant that Murray is.

Just because Murray is good at two sports doesn't mean he's a better athlete. There are few players that have the combination of size, speed, and coordination that Williamson has. When you look at his massive frame, you know there is no one like him.

Williamson is a monster on the basketball. There is no way a 6'7 and 285 pounds should explode the way he does, but when he's running in the open court, it's like a runaway freight train coming at you. Throw that in with his almost supernatural ability to elevate and you have the best athlete in the country. He's basically an offensive lineman that can run and jump like LeBron James. That is scary.
