SoonerNation links: Could Thompson start?

From Brandon Chatmon: As the 2012 football season progressed, at least one thing remained constant at Oklahoma.

There was redshirt freshman signal-caller Kendal Thompson staying late after practice, working on his game and preparing to compete for the starting quarterback job this spring. Thompson, one of the stars of OU's Red-White spring game in 2012, brings unique athleticism and running ability behind center.

And yet Thompson remains the most overlooked candidate in the battle for the Sooners' starting quarterback job. Blake Bell, considered by many to be the favorite to start in 2013, has garnered much of the attention, and newcomer Trevor Knight was praised by the OU defense in the fall for the way he quarterbacked the scout team.
