After the Oklahoma Sooners' Cotton Bowl game, Landry Jones will leave the program, owning most the team's passing records. That makes it look like the Sooners might struggle in 2013 as Blake Bell works to step into Jones' role. ESPN reported on Dec. 21 that Bell might have competition for that job.
Trevor Knight came to Oklahoma as a 2012 recruit, the 22nd best quarterback in the nation. As a red-shirt freshman, Knight worked as the scout team quarterback and starting cornerback Aaron Colvin said he will be a player to watch.
“Trevor has a chance to bring some noise,” Colvin told ESPN. “I’m very curious to see what he does because I think he has a bright future.”
Knight won the Sooners' scout team co-offensive player of the year honors this season, regularly throwing amazing passes and making the defense look foolish on occasion. According the ESPN, he looks poised to come into 2013 with the best chance of threatening Blake Bell for the starter's job, while former Southmoore standout Kendall Thompson remains a dark horse.
