Oklahoma has officially announced that quarterback Trevor Knight has been granted a full release to transfer and will "explore his options."
It was reported last night that Knight would be transferring out of the Sooners' program.
Both Knight and Bob Stoops have commented on the potential transfer.

"Trevor has been unbelievable during his time as a Sooner," said Stoops. "I can't say enough about him and what he's meant to our program. He will graduate this month and has told us that he would like to investigate the possibility of finishing his career elsewhere. We understand him wanting to explore his options and will be happy for him if he's able to find a good fit."
"My decision to reach out and communicate with other potential programs is something I feel I must do in order to see if there is a perfect fit for my senior season. I can promise you that no one is more proud to be a Sooner than I am, and in no way shape or form will this take away from my excitement and commitment heading into the championship season. I am truly touched by the support from both Coach Stoops and Coach (Lincoln) Riley, as well as all of Sooner Nation during this time.
"Enough about me. Let's go beat the Tigers. Boomer!"
The release makes it clear that a transfer is not a foregone conclusion and it's possible Knight could remain at Oklahoma. The former starting quarterback will at least stay with the Sooners through the College Football Playoff. Oklahoma is set to play Clemson in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31.
