The University of Oklahoma football team picked up a commitment from a top Texas high school quarterback on Wednesday.

San Antonio (Reagan High School) star Trevor Knight, a 6-foot-2-inch dual threat-style quarterback, made his commitment known via Facebook after switching from Texas A&M.

Knight made his commitment known on the same day his grandfather passed away.

Knight’s Facebook post read, “On one of the toughest days of my life with the passing of my grandpa, the light shines through in honor of him and I have committed to play football For the University of Oklahoma! BOOMER SOONER!”

David Wetzel, Knight’s coach at Reagan, said the Sooners couldn’t be getting a better kid.

“He’s got a great family, a great head on his shoulders, extremely intelligent,” Reagan head coach David Wetzel said. “He’s a great young man, that’s probably the most important thing if anybody doesn’t know him. Character is probably his number one trait. He’s an extremely hard worker, but he’s very blessed with really outstanding ability, physically.”

Knight had previously committed to Texas A&M but after a weekend trip to Oklahoma to meet with the Sooner coaching staff, he has decided to switch to OU.

Knight’s twin brother, Connor, will likely also attend OU. Connor Knight is a receiver/tight end/deep snapper that will join the Sooners as a walk-on.

Knight’s change of heart likely rules out the nation’s top-rated quarterback, Gunner Kiel, from joining the Sooners. Kiel was expected to make a commitment in June, but decided he needed more time. Kiel’s most likely destinations are believed to be Alabama or Indiana.
