Knight has been starting for Reagan since his sophomore season when he led his team to an 8-3 record and a district championship as he gained 2,000 yards of total offense. Injuries to teammates on both sides of the ball derailed Reagan’s season last year as the Rattler’s finished 5-5.

Knight, though, passed for 1,629 yards with 11 touchdowns and rushed for 1,050 more with 12 touchdowns last season.

Knight had offers and interest from Baylor, Clemson, LSU, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Wetzel said Knight’s style shouldn’t be a concern for OU fans. Even though he’s not a prototypical pro-style quarterback like OU typically uses, Wetzel said Knight can adjust.

“Coach Heupel and Coach Stoops have both been here and they’ve been evaluating him for quite some time,” Wetzel said. “I feel quite sure they’ve had some of those conversations.”
