A&M gets OU’s Trevor Knight; OU gets A&M’s Murray

Oklahoma and Texas A&M are swapping quarterbacks.

OU’s Trevor Knight, star of the Sugar Bowl upset of Alabama in 2014, is transferring to Texas A&M after losing his starting job to Baker Mayfield this season. Knight was redshirted and has graduated, making him immediately eligible for the Aggies in his final season.

OU coach Bob Stoops granted him a full release.

In high school, Knight had originally committed to Texas A&M before switching to Oklahoma. Knight played in 24 games for the sooners and threw for 3,424 yards, 25 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

Kyler Murray, who just finished his freshman year in College Station, announced he is transferring to Oklahoma. He will have to sit out a year but then will have three years of eligibility. Murray was a highly recruited five-star quarterback in high school who almost signed with Oklahoma.
