OU football: Trevor Knight the top choice at QB for Sooners

Bob Stoops says Trevor Knight isn’t the man yet. Knight’s teammates, though, say otherwise.
BY RYAN ABER Published: August 17, 2014

Knight is competitive, for sure, but he doesn’t let that get in the way of being supportive and being a leader.

That, Knight said, has helped him keep an even keel through the struggles of last regular season and in the aftermath of his Sugar Bowl coming out party.

“I think they would say I’m the same guy every day,” Knight said, referring to his teammates. “A fun guy who likes to have a good time. But when it’s time to get it done, I’m pretty serious.”

No. Name Height Weight Class

9 Trevor Knight 6-1 201 So.

Knight had an up-and-down freshman year. He was in and out of the starting lineup, but his Sugar Bowl performance raised the expectations for his second year sky high.

14 Cody Thomas 6-4 211 RFr.

Thomas’ arm strength might be the best of the bunch. He still plays baseball for the Sooners, but Thomas has made football his priority in Norman.

4 Justice Hansen 6-3 204 Fr.

Hansen enrolled in January to get a head start on competing for playing time and is going toe-to-toe with Thomas to backup Knight this season, assuming Baker Mayfield is forced to sit.

6 Baker Mayfield 6-2 209 So.

Mayfield is likely to be the backup if the NCAA approves his petition for immediate eligibility after he transferred from Texas Tech.
