Report: Texas A&M the favorite to land Oklahoma QB Trevor Knight
Texas A&M may be close to finding its next quarterback after a pair of them opted to transfer from the school earlier this month.
The Aggies are the front-runner to land Oklahoma transfer Trevor Knight, according to a report from 247Sports.com’s Taylor Hamm. Knight is a graduate transfer who was beat out by Baker Mayfield in 2015 after starting 10 games for the Sooners last season. He will be allowed to play right away without losing eligibility.
Knight originally committed to A&M in 2012 before signing with Oklahoma. He completed 56 percent of his passes while throwing for 2,300 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.
The Aggies have some turmoil at the quarterback position after sophomore Kyle Allen and freshman Kyler Murray chose to leave the school. Knight would be a good fit, albeit for one season, for a program looking for a leader on offense.
Texas A&M has a commitment from Tate Martell, the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2017.
