10:10 AM ET 08.17 | Oklahoma's search for a starting quarterback appears to be reaching its conclusion -- not that there's much time left to decide. Sooners coach Bob Stoops, in an appearance on ESPN's SportsCenter on Friday, said that he hoped to name a starting quarterback by the end of next week. Stoops will decide between Blake Bell, who saw plenty of action over the past two seasons in the "Belldozer" and redshirt freshman Trevor Knight. Bell has rushed for 24 touchdowns over the past two seasons but has attempted just 20 passes in that time. Knight was a four-star recruit out of San Antonio's Reagan High School, throwing for 2,092 yards, 27 touchdowns and just three interceptions as a senior.

" ... Whichever quarterback the Sooners go with, the team will be more mobile at the position than they???ve been in the past few years ..."

So does that mean they'll look like KState with Colin Klein or Nebraska with Tayor Martinez?

I'm guessing it will be more like KState, since I think Bell will win the job. Been reading some good things about Knight, though. Bell may have a short leash to start the year.

Too bad KT got hurt...but I think you are right..BB will be on a short lease, and I haven't been too impressed with any of his 20 passes LOL

Knight would appear to have a much higher ceiling. Would be shocked if they went with Bell.

Better hope they can both play both ways, that D is going to leak like a sieve!
