With Baker Mayfield‘s stock climbing this season, Trevor Knight is seeking out new opportunities to get some considerable playing time. Knight was granted a full release from his scholarship by Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops. As Knight pursues new opportunities, Stoops will reportedly not block Knight from transferring to any destination, which is always refreshing to see.
Knight is expected to graduate this semester, which will mean he will be ruled eligible to play immediately next fall at the FBS level. According to a report from Sooner Scoop, Knight has already been in touch with a few potential destinations, including Kansas State, and a return to Oklahoma has not been entirely ruled out. Other schools reportedly to have been in communication with Knight include Georgia, Oregon and SMU. According to Sooner Scoop‘s report, Knight will take his time to make his decision so he can avoid being any kind of distraction to his soon-to-be-former Sooner teammates as they prepare for the College Football Playoff.
Knight appeared in just six games this season, in which he completed 55.0 percent of his passes for 305 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Knight passed for 2,300 yards last season with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, but lost the starting job to former walk-on and Texas Tech transfer Mayfield this fall.
