Kyler Murray tweeted out his debut Nike commercial with the caption: "Just the beginning." 

The former Oklahoma quarterback and projected No. 1 pick in Thursday's NFL draft was one of 27 prospects to sign with Nike on Wednesday




The ad shows footage of Murray playing sports as a kid, and pivots to his highlights at Allen High School and OU. 

"I just love sports: basketball, baseball, football," Murray says as narrator. "As a kid I did it all. But in my heart, I'm a football player. There's nothing like it. It's what I live for. Ever since I could walk, I've been drawn to it." 

The minute-long spot ends with a confident laugh. 

"I've always dreamed of being a professional athlete," Murray says. "But honestly, I want to be the best to ever play the game." 

The Nike Swoosh then flashes against a blank background.
