After his production last season, it’s not surprising that Baker Mayfield ranks as one of the nation’s top returning passers.
The Oklahoma senior quarterback is atop Bleacher Report’s list for top passers in the nation. Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph ranks third in a strong showing for the Big 12.
It’s a tad surprising that no other Big 12 quarterbacks made the list.
Jesse Ertz of Kansas State is one of the nation’s most versatile quarterbacks after rushing and passing for more than 1,000 yards last season. Shane Buechele looked strong in the spring when he torched Texas’ defense for four touchdowns in the spring game.
And Florida transfer Will Grier is expected to provide West Virginia with one of the nation’s most notable transfers. He’ll likely start for the Mountaineers in their Sept. 3 opener against Virginia Tech.
Another big season for passing quarterbacks in the Big 12.
Where have we heard that before?
