Redshirt freshman Trevor Knight will start at quarterback for the Sooners.
NORMAN, Okla. -- R.J. Washington's words were foretelling.
"Everybody's excited [about Blake Bell] but people have to watch out for Trevor [Knight]," the former Oklahoma defensive end said last November. "Don't count him out, he's going to surprise a lot of people."
Eight months later, Trevor Knight has been named the starting quarterback at Oklahoma, coach Bob Stoops announced Thursday. The redshirt freshman from San Antonio beat out Bell, a junior, to earn the start in his first collegiate game against Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 31.
