Oklahoma’s 2013 quarterback situation was a mess. It was a weird feeling not knowing from week-to-week who would be under center, and 2014 should raise even more questions.

With recent reports of Texas Tech quarterback Baker Mayfield possibly transferring to the University of Oklahoma, fans should expect an interesting spring.

Now according to The Oklahoman, Mayfield does intend to transfer and walk-on to Oklahoma’s football team. However, it would appear Bob Stoops has no intention of seeking Mayfield’s services.

And who could blame him?

The Sooners would be crowded at the QB position with all three of OU’s 2013 quarterbacks coming back next season. Also, you have to anticipate Cody Thomas and Justice Hansen will try to swoop in and take the job currently held by Trevor Knight.

For those not familiar with Mayfield, he did not play in Texas Tech’s loss to 38-30 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners. However, in eight games, he threw twelve touchdown passes and passed for 2,315 yards.

Mayfield completed 64.1% of his passes and averaged 6.8 yards per throw.

Now, this is considering Mayfield wins an appeal with the NCAA to bypass their standard transfer rules. However, there is no guarantee he will be approved to play, but it all makes for an exciting off-season as we await the news for Corey Nelson, seeking an appeal as well.
