The running back room has a lot of options in 2022, but not much experience. Eric Gray is almost certainly the day one starter; after him, a scholarship group including Jovantae Barnes, Marcus Major, and Gavin Sawchuck will all be pushing for playing time. Then, walk-on backs Tawee Walker, Todd Hudson, and Knowles will also be fighitng to play. In his senior season, Knowles will continue to push for carries for the Sooners.
