|Oklahoma QB Trevor Wright.|
Oklahoma redshirt freshman quarterback Trevor Knight is competing for the right to succeed Landry Jones as the Sooners' starting QB. He's in a competition with two other Sooner QB's Blake Bell and Kendal Thompson. The San Antonio native Knight grew up as a Texas fan. The reason he's not at Texas now is an old one by now - he wasn't recruited by the Longhorns.
“Longhorn this, Longhorn that,” remembered his oldest brother, Tyler Knight. “He had a big basketball goal on the wall with a Longhorn head on it. I knew (Oklahoma) was where his heart was, but it's funny.”
If Knight is successful at Oklahoma, he would become the latest in a line of Lone Star State quarterbacks that were passed over by Texas. That includes current Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, and Texas A&M starting QB Johnny Manziel - the two most recent Heisman Trophy winners. Texas might not be able to handle much more of this.
