Gabriel will play for his third college team after beginning his career at UCF and has one year of eligibility remaining.

Gabriel threw for more than 3,000 yards in 2022 and 2023 and led the Sooners to a 10-2 record this season. Oklahoma plays Arizona in the Alamo Bowl.

Gabriel announced his transfer after Oklahoma offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby took the Mississippi State head coaching job.

“The past two years at OU as a Sooner I have made memories with friends and family that remind me how blessed I am,” Gabriel said in part after entering his name into the transfer portal. “I have been able to play football for an amazing group of coaches and alongside men who have become my brothers. More than anything, I have grown in faith and love. I appreciate and cherish these memories and relationships forever.”

Lanning now has another mobile quarterback to work with after two seasons of Nix running the offense.

Nix was also a transfer after spending his first three years at Auburn.
