During the next two months leading up to the Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Sooners Illustrated will breakdown the Oklahoma Sooners’ roster, starting with Dominique Alexander (No. 1 on the roster) and working all the way down to Dwayne Orso (No. 99) and the incoming freshmen.
We’ll look at last year’s performance, the best-case scenario for this season – without projecting injuries – and what each player means to the short-term or long-term success of the Sooners.
No. 89 - TE Connor Knight (6-foot-4, 251 pounds)
What happened last year: Knight served as Oklahoma’s short snapper in all 13 games last season.
Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 3. Like holder Grant Bothun, Knight has one role. He’s not the only one that can do it, but for Oklahoma, it’s best that he does.
