The Oklahoma Sooners surprisingly named Texas Tech transfer Baker Mayfield as their starter, ahead of incumbent Trevor Knight. Â As both players are juniors, I would expect to start hearing Trevor Knight transfer rumors.
Texas A&M announced that sophomore Kyle Allen has held off freshman hot-shot prospect Kyler Murray and will remain the team’s starting quarterback. Â Allen played in 9 and started the final 5 games of the 2014 season for the Aggies. Â Once again, if Allen excels to start the season, expect to hear talk that Murray is looking for a place to start next season. Â Murray was a ESPN.com’s #13 overall recruit and #1 dual-threat quarterback prospect coming out of high school.
The University of Kansas has named Montell Cozart it’s starter following the ACL injury suffered by Michael Cummings. Â Cozart started the first 5 games of last season before Cummings took his spot and started the final 7.
Finally, Boise State confirmed that Ryan Finley will be the team’s starting quarterback this season. Â Finley was the team’s #2 quarterback last season and was expected to be the team’s starter coming into the season, but that was put in jeopardy by off-the-field alcohol related incidents. Â Coach Peterson stated that Finley was then in a competition withÂ redshirt sophomoreÂ Tommy Stuart, true freshman Brett RypienÂ and redshirt freshmanÂ Alex OgleÂ throughout training camp.
