Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will not play in 2014 after his appeal for an immediate eligibility waiver was denied by the NCAA.
Due to conference rules, Mayfield must now sit out and also lose a year of eligibility. This makes little logical sense, as Mayfield was a walk-on at TTU and is currently a walk-on at OU, but it's bureaucratic reality for the young signal-caller. The former Red Raider will continue to form the nation's scariest aerial scout team offense along with receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. Mayfield was the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year last year after throwing for 2,315 yards, 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Sep 30 - 5:28 PM

One Big 12 assistant coach told Sports Illustrated redshirt transfer QB Baker Mayfield is "probably" the best QB on Oklahoma's roster.

"It’s really incredible," the assistant said of the path Mayfield has had to take since wanting to transfer from Texas Tech. "He’s pretty damn good." Mayfield started seven games for TTU and was finally allowed to receive scholarship help while attending Oklahoma, however, he is not eligible to play in games until next year. He will then have two seasons remaining of on-field action.

The NCAA denied Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield's immediate eligibility waiver, however he is allowed to be on scholarship with the Sooners.

Per Chip Brown of Horns Digest, Mayfield will not be eligible to play until 2015 and will then have two more years of eligibility. The Texas Tech transfer will continue to practice with the Sooners this season, forming the best scout team unit along with receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. Trevor Knight is only a redshirt sophomore, so it would be an upset if Mayfield enters next season as the outright starter.

Texas Tech's hesitation to release transfer Baker Mayfield in a timely manner has left Oklahoma without an available scholarship to give the QB, according to beat writer Jason Kersey.

Texas Tech finally allowed Mayfield to seek a scholarship, but they are still withholding his eligibility to play immediately, a decision Mayfield is contesting. It is very late in the process for schools to have scholarships available, as many hand out the prizes to walk-ons following preseason camp. Mayfield walked on to Texas Tech last year and earned considerable playing time. "This was somewhat of an empty gesture by Texas Tech," Kersey tweeted.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield has hired the same attorney that worked with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of gaining immediate eligibility following his transfer from Texas Tech.

The attorney, Jim Darnell, has experience dealing with the NCAA. Mayfield earned some playing experience during his sole season at Texas Tech, and it might be in his best interest to redshirt this season behind solidified Sooners starter Trevor Knight. Even if he does not earn eligibility, Mayfield will be allowed to practice with Oklahoma all season.

Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops said the school is seeking an immediate eligibility waiver for transfer QB Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield transferred from Texas Tech after just one season. Back in January, Mayfield appealed to Texas Tech since he was never under scholarship with the Red Raiders. He lost that appeal. Trevor Knight will almost certainly start no matter the outcome of Mayfield's appeal. Oklahoma is seeking immediate eligibility for Dorial Green-Beckham as well.

Former Texas Tech freshman QB Baker Mayfield will walk on at Oklahoma.

Mayfield's long journey has finally reached its destination. The freshman signal-caller decided to bolt Lubbock after he was informed that sophomore Michael Brewer would start in the bowl game. He decided to transfer to OU, but Texas Tech rejected Mayfield's appeal to not lose a year of eligibility in the process. Mayfield will have to sit out a season, but he likely would have sat behind Trevor Knight and Blake Bell in 2014 anyway.

Former Texas Tech freshman QB Baker Mayfield lost his appeal seeking to avoid giving up a year of eligibility while transferring to Oklahoma.

School policy states that a player must sit out the next year and lose a year of eligibility if he transfers within the Big 12, which Mayfield intended to do with the Sooners. A panel of Texas Tech's athletics council rejected Mayfield's argument that he shouldn't lose a season of eligibility because he walked on at TTU and was never on scholarship. Mayfield told ESPN last month that he would likely transfer to a different school if he lost his appeal. He mentioned that East Carolina, Houston, and other schools have already called.
