08:20 AM ET 07.15 | Many expected Gunner Kiel to be the first domino to fall among the nation's top-rated QB prospects. With a rumored top three of Oklahoma, Alabama and Indiana, Kiel had many fan bases wondering where he might end up. It appears, however, we now know of at least one school Kiel is unlikely to end up at thanks to an unlikely domino in San Antonio (Texas) quarterback Trevor Knight. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound signal-caller flipped his commitment from Texas A&M to Oklahoma late Wednesday night and, in the process, started what should be a fun quarterback commitment derby.

Does this mean Gabbert's gonna change again, too? It's been a week or so, hasn't it?

Wilson too, but he's not a HS free agent ... er ... I mean recruit.

Yeah, that is a funny thing with him. Plus why would your top three be OU ALA and Indiana, where does that third one come in at, just does not fit the class of the other two and should not fit his class if he is one of the best, does not compute at all.

Former OU offensive coordinator Wilson is at Indiana. Pretty good track record with QBs.

Don't know but Zero U may not be getting the sharpest tool in the shed with Knight. If he's from San Antonio that's close enough to College Station to make you wonder why he even considered the aggies in the first place. Took him this long to figure out he would rather not go to such a place? Slow learner.

The area between I-35, I-45 and I-10 is known as the weirdo triangle, and College Station is it's capital. He was smart to head north.

These youngsters don't always use the best judgement or decision process - remember some of the choices/decisions you made at 17? I do, and am lucky I am still alive and not in jail.

Waco is the backup capital.

The area around College Station is where all the FEMA trailers go to die.

They need to add Robert Marve in there just for nostalgia.

You know, with all the hype on these incoming QB's, they just will avoiding the places that got put in the NCAA dog house lately, slims down their choices.

Seriously this is the Scout/Rivals effect and I don't like it. The media w|-|ores have found another growth market - high school kids - and they're hyping them like they're NFL free agents. I'm sure the boosters love it and some fanatics lap it up but the kids aren't mature enough to sort through it yet. All the more reason to become a Sports Psychiatrist.

That'll be the next place you see scum like Lyles worm their way into the mix, selling their services to young promising athletes as a Sports Psychiatrist, taking the term "handler" to a new level.

Carp like setting up webcams to get around rules involving coaches contacting recruits sends the wrong message too. These kids have become the center of everyone's attention but little do they know it's just a meat market.
