Texas A&M continues its search for consistency at the quarterback position since former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel departed in 2013.
The process was exacerbated at the end of last season when shockingly both Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray decided to transfer.
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin has generally named a starter at the end of spring workouts, but considering he’s choosing between last year’s third-string quarterback Jake Hubanek and Oklahoma transfer Trevor Knight, this decision could linger.
“We’ll see where we are. Just because it’s what we’ve done (in the past) doesn’t mean every situation is different, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said, according to The Austin American-Statesman‘s Suzanne Halliburton. “We’ll see where they are at the end of spring football and we’ll assess them and we’ll see where they are.”
Hubenak started in the Aggies’ bowl game at the end of last season. Knight, the Sooners’ hero in the Sugar Bowl following the 2014 season, lost his starting job last season to Baker Mayfield.
Texas A&M will hold an open scrimmage on Friday night.
“They (Knight and Hubenak) have been in a few live situations so far where they’ve had to compete and make plays,” Sumlin said. “We’ve learned some things about them and they’ve learned some things about themselves. That’s why, on Friday night, we’ll get plenty of snaps. I’d like to get around 100 total plays.”
The Aggies will conclude spring drills April 9, with the Maroon & White Game at Kyle Field. It will be televised at 6 p.m ET on the SEC Network.
