SAN ANTONIO – Former Ronald Reagan High School quarterback Trevor Knight is transferring from Oklahoma to Texas A&M.

Knight took to Twitter on Monday to announce his decision, saying that he is "extremely excited for the opportunity that Coach (Kevin) Sumlin and his staff have afforded me and (I) look forward to making my last year of eligibility a memorable one."

Knight spent the previous three seasons with the Sooners, racking up a total of 3,424 passing yards and 25 touchdown passes. He added eight touchdowns on the ground. The majority of his playing time came in the 2014 season when Knight started 10 of the team's 13 games.

This past season had the QB watching from the sidelines the majority of the season as Texas Tech transfer Baker Mayfield dominated the playing time. In 2015, Knight started just five of the eight games in which he played.

Knight joins a Texas A&M team that has seen the recent departures of 5-star quarterbacks Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen. Murray announced he is transferring to Oklahoma, while Allen is reportedly headed to the University of Houston.

Knight said on Twitter that his time at OU was, "A dream come true."

He thanked OU head coach Bob Stoops and others for their leadership during his four years at the university.

Knight ended his statement on Twitter with a glance back at his time in Norman and a look ahead to College Station.

"So farewell for now Sonner Nation and BOOMER SOONER! And hello Aggieland, let's have some fun! Gig 'em!" Knight said.

Knight graduated from San Antonio's Ronald Reagan High School in 2012.
