Graduate transfer from Oklahoma who started 11 games for the Aggies in 2016, throwing for 2,423 yards and 19 touchdowns with seven interceptions and rushing for 614 yards and 10 scores.

Made five starts as a true freshman, throwing nine touchdowns against five interceptions and racking up 819 passing yards and 445 rushing yards.
Short, game-managing quarterback effective throwing on the move. Patient in the pocket, displays a sense of timing and goes to secondary targets. Remains poised under the rush, steps up to avoid defenders and easily picks up yardage with his legs when necessary. Puts air under deep passes allowing receivers to run to the throw, effectively sets up screens and flashes the ability to precisely place the ball where only his target can make the catch. Challenges in the vertical game, plays with a tough attitude and always works to make something positive happen.
Releases the ball off his back foot which negatively impacts his accuracy. Occasionally puts up questionable throws under pressure. Not a big quarterback that can withstand the rush.
Knight has size limitations but is a solid all-around quarterback who will be an asset on the depth chart.
