Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced Monday that he is opting for Texas Tech transfer
Baker Mayfield at quarterback over 2014’s starter Trevor Knight.
Mayfield had to sit out last year per NCAA transfer rules. At Texas Tech in 2013 he played in eight games and threw for 2,315 yards with 12 touchdowns. As a result the freshman walk-on was named Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year.
Following a five-loss season, Stoops is feeling a bit of heat in Norman. Mayfield should be an improvement over the inconsistent Knight. Coforepr would even go so far as to suggest that the “competition” for the position in spring ball and now in fall camp may have been a mere formality.
