Texas A&M’s quarterback situation got some much-needed good news Monday, as Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight announced that he would be transferring to Texas A&M. The Aggies lost both Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen to transfers last month.
Knight has graduated from Oklahoma, which will make him eligible immediately for the 2016 season as a graduate transfer.

Knight became the Sooners’ starter for the back half of the 2013 season, and notched a win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl to end the season. However in 2014, he sustained an injury towards the end of the season, and in 2015 he lost the starting job to walk-on Baker Mayfield.
Knight came in for a concussed Mayfield in the second half against TCU on Nov. 21, but he completed only 31 percent of his passes and threw an interception. Knight released a lengthy statement, seen above, from his Twitter account shortly after the transfer was announced. He thanked Sooners head coach Bob Stoops and the rest of the coaching staff for his four years in Norman, and then went on to discuss his decision to transfer to Texas A&M. Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlim also released a statement regarding Knight’s transfer.
“We are excited to welcome Trevor (Knight) to the Aggie family.” Sumlin told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy. We know he will be a great representative of Texas A&M”
