CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler tagged Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight's as one of the more surprising invites to the NFL Scouting Combine.
"His inconsistent mechanics and decision-making stand out," Brugler writes, "but so does his athleticism, which he will show off in Indianapolis." After transferring over from Oklahoma, Knight went on to post a 2016 campaign in which he threw for 2,432 yards (53.3% completions) while totaling 29 touchdowns (19 passing, 10 rushing). For his career as a whole, he completed passes at a 55.5% clip. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views him as a potential undrafted free agent. Feb 16 - 6:28 PM

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder) said that he will "absolutely" be playing in the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl.

Knight sustained a shoulder injury against Mississippi State on November 5, missed a pair of contests, then returned to throw for 211 yards and three touchdowns in a loss to LSU to close out the regular season. Barring a setback, it looks like he should be good to go for the Aggies' bowl showdown with the Wildcats on December 28.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder) believes he is progressing toward potentially playing against LSU on Thursday.

"It's the competitor in me; I feel like I can go out there and play. But is [the injured shoulder] structurally ready? I don't know yet," Knight said. While the 6-foot-1, 202-pound redshirt senior hopes that he will be able to play on Thanksgiving -- he relayed that he is "progressing really well" -- Knight has not yet received medical clearance for Thursday's contest against the Tigers. He initially suffered what was believed to be a season-ending shoulder injury against Mississippi State on November 5. Jake Hubenak will draw the start on Thursday should Knight need more time to heal up, but at the very least, the Aggies slinger looks like he is progressing toward playing in Texas A&M's yet-to-be-determined bowl bid.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight will miss the remainder of the 2016 regular season due to a shoulder injury.

This time a week ago, the Aggies were riding high, cresting into the initial Playoff rankings at No. 4. The good times lasted three days before A&M was rudely knocked from its reverie by Mississippi State on Saturday, falling by a 35-28 final. Knight suffered his season-ending injury in the first half of that contest. HC Kevin Sumlin indicated that the 6-foot-1, 202-pound Oklahoma transfer could potentially return for bowl action, though that is far from a given. Jake Hubenak is expected to start Texas A&M's final three regular season games, against Ole Miss, UTSA and LSU. This injury effectively ends Knight's collegiate career, though we shall see if he is able to make a final bowl cameo.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin would not place an immediate timetable on the return of redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder).

"We'll evaluate him and see where he is," Sumlin offered after Saturday's upset loss at the hands of Mississippi State. In that contest, Knight was forced out after sustaining an injury to his right shoulder on a 19-yard touchdown dash in the first quarter. While he did return to the game for a short time, he was pulled for good after falling once more on that shoulder in the second quarter. Should Knight be unable to play in next Saturday's game against Ole Miss, Jake Hubenak would draw the start. Further updates as to Knight's playing status for that date with the Rebs should filter in over the course of the practice week.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight was taken to the locker room in Saturday's game against Mississippi State with a right arm or shoulder injury.

Knight had difficulty throwing on the sideline after rushing for a score. He attempted to test the shoulder on the bench, but after a few throws he went to the locker room for further evaluation. This is obviously Knight's throwing arm. The Aggies, who ranked No. 4 in the initial College Football Playoff standings, are down 21-7.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight completed 14-of-31 passes for 164 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 33-14 loss at Alabama.

In the losing effort, Knight became the fifth quarterback with multiple touchdown passes in more than one game versus the Tide while HC Nick Saban has been there. He joined the eclectic group of Johnny Manziel, Chad Kelly, Nick Marshall and Matthew Stafford as a holder of that distinction. We weren't stunned that Knight was up-and-down through the air against the Tide, but we were a little surprised that Knight was ineffective on the ground (13 carries for 24 yards).

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight accounted for five total touchdowns in Saturday's 45-38, double-overtime win over Tennessee.

Knight was intercepted twice, but aside from those mistakes, he absolutely owned the stage in a battle between undefeated squads. The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder finished out with 239 yards passing and two aerial touchdowns, plus 110 yards rushing and three additional scores. In a bit of smooth statistical symmetry, the former Sooner gunslinger has accounted for 18 total touchdowns this season -- nine through the air, nine on the ground.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight completed 12-of-22 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Arkansas.

Knight did the most damage on the ground, shredding the Razorbacks for 157 yards and two additional scores. Knight is up to 1,055 passing yards, 308 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns for the 4-0 Aggies.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight completed 21-of-37 passes for 344 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while chipping in with 78 yards rushing and a score in Saturday's 67-0 win over Prairie View.

Knight's 78 yards rushing were good for second-most on the Aggies and just one shy of the 79 that Kendall Bussey posted to lead the team. As for his work through the air, the 6-foot-1, 202-pounder connected for all three of his passing touchdowns in the second quarter, hitting up Speedy Noil from eight yards out and hooking up with star wideout Christian Kirk on 34- and 64-yard scoring scoring tosses. Texas A&M will try for a 3-0 start when they tango with Auburn next Saturday.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight completed 22-of-42 passes for 239 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 31-24 overtime victory over UCLA.

Knight outshone Josh Rosen in his Aggies' debut. The capper came in overtime. Kevin Sumlin elected to go for it on 4th and Goal from the 1. The Bruins bit on a fake handoff and Knight trotted unperturbed into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. In all, Knight added 31 yards and two scores on the ground. The Oklahoma transfer sure looks like he's solved A&M's quarterback issues.

In a column penned for Sports Illustrated's Campus Rush, Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight defended the rights of graduate transfers.

"I've heard some coaches complain about the grad transfer rule, say they don't like or don't think it's 'right.' I hear some people say we have a transfer epidemic," Knight wrote. Then came the kicker. "Well, there are a lot of similarities to coaches leaving for what they call better opportunities -- why is it different for the players?" The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder took advantage of his graduate transfer rights in January when he shifted over from Oklahoma to Texas A&M. Knight has already been named the Aggies' starter for 2016.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight said, "We're heading in the right direction."

"From practice one to practice 15 of spring, it's not even the same team. That says a lot about the coaching staff," Knight said. He called Texas A&M's receiving corps -- led by sophomore star-in-making Christian Kirk and rounded out by talented wideouts Josh Reynolds and Ricky Seals-Jones -- "incredibly talented." Knight has already been named Texas A&M's starting quarterback and hopes to build on the early positive momentum the team is beginning to accumulate. "I look forward to making another job come fall camp and into the season as well. Just continuing to get better each and every day," he said. The hope is that the veteran Knight provides a level of stability after talented youngsters Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray transferred out in the college football equivalent of a slow motion train wreck over the winter.

Texas A&M named graduate QB Trevor Knight the starter in 2016.

We're still waiting to hear the outcome from a number of starting quarterback competitions around the country -- most will be decided in August camp -- but the Aggies cleared up their mystery early. Oklahoma graduate transfer Knight will helm the ship for the 2016 campaign, beating out junior Jake Hubenak for the honor. The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder closed out the spring completing 25-of-36 passes for 282 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the annual Maroon-and-White game. In his best season with Oklahoma (2014), he accumulated 2,300 passing yards (56.6% completions) with a 14/12 TD/INT ratio.

Texas A&M OC Noel Mazzone said that the battle between graduate QB Trevor Knight and sophomore QB Jake Hubenak has been a "really good competition."

At this early juncture, there's no front-runner. We probably shouldn't expect one to be named this spring unless one of Knight or Hubenak blows the socks off HC Kevin Sumlin. At the very least, the team dynamic has changed. Stalwart junior DE Myles Garrett is among those who have noticed the shifty locker room dynamic with Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray having transferred out of the program. He specifically pointed to the influence of the 6-foot-1, 202-pound Knight. Said Garrett, "[T]he way [Knight] carries himself, how hard he works, you just want to follow him."
