A year after the transfer portal created a seismic shift for the Oklahoma Sooners football program, another one of their quarterbacks has decided to put his name in and move on to a different school.
Saturday, Oklahoma quarterback Nick Evers announced that he is entering the transfer portal. The Class of 2022 receipt told On3 Sports’ Hayes Fawcett that it was “a rare privilege” to represent OU but he’s moving on to find a place where he can “showcase my ability.”

“The ability to truly compete is all anyone can ask, so I take with me the spirit of humbleness and growth over the past year in hopes to both showcase my ability and make even greater impacts both on and off the field,” Evers said.
The Flower Mound High School quarterback was rated the No. 172 overall prospect in the Class of 2022 by 247. They also rated him the No. 9 QB in the country.
The freshman played in one game this season, and threw only one pass, toward the end of Oklahoma’s 49-0 loss to the Texas Longhorns.
Evers will enter the portal with four years of eligibility remaining.
Last year, Oklahoma saw Spencer Rattler and Caleb Williams transfer out of the program.
