Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight will transfer from OU and has been granted a full release by the school and head coach Bob Stoops, according to a report by Soonerscoop.com on Thursday, December 10.
Trevor Knight, who has started 15 career games for the Sooners and was the 2014 Sugar Bowl MVP, lost the starting quarterback job to Baker Mayfield before this season. Mayfield has flourished, become an All-American and led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff.
Despite losing the starting quarterback job, Knight was still elected a captain by his teammates.
In his career, Knight has completed 57.1 percent of his pass attempts for 3,424 yards, 25 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He’s also rushed for a career 853 yards and eight scores.
According to the SoonerScoop.com report, Knight has already been in contact with other programs including OU’s Big 12 rival Kansas State, Oregon, Georgia and SMU.
Stoops has never placed any restrictions on outgoing transfer players. Without such limits, Knight could potentially start for the Wildcats when they play at Oklahoma next October 15.
Knight would not be subject to the NCAA’s typical rule requiring transfers to sit out one year if he graduates with his bachelor’s degree.
