Baker Mayfield is known for his exploits with the University of Oklahoma – Oklahoma Sooners soccer team. The young, talented and handsome quarterback, who won the 2017 Heisman Trophy, has just begun his professional career in the National Football League (NFL) with the Cleveland Browns, after joining them as the first player in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Baker Mayfield Biography, Age
The former quarterback of Texas Tech and Oklahoma was born on April 14, 1995, in Austin, Texas, as Baker Reagan Mayfield. He was born to his parents James Mayfield and Gina Mayfield. His only known sibling is an older brother named Matt Mayfield, who plays baseball. His interest in playing soccer was already evident at a tender age.
Baker Mayfield received his high school education at Lake Travis High School and played football with the school’s football team – the Cavaliers. His record with the team stands out when he finished his time with the Cavaliers with an impressive record – 6,255 passes, 8 interceptions, and 67 touchdowns. He also helped the team make an impact at the 2011 4A State Championship with an outstanding run of 25 wins in 27 games.
College And NFL Career
His encouraging statistics in high school meant that Baker Mayfield would continue his football career in college. Accordingly, he enrolled at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, and played as a quarterback for the Red Raiders. His performance in his first season – in which he moved straight into the starting line-up after an injury to starter Michael Brewer – earned him the Big 12 Conference Freshman Offensive Player of the Year award. However, Mayfield would try to swap Texas Tech for Oklahoma after some disagreements with the team management.
He transferred to the University of Oklahoma in 2014 and sat out the entire season because he was not eligible to play for the Oklahoma Sooners due to the Big 12 Conference transfer rules. He became the preferred quarterback for the 2015 season after defeating Trevor Knight in an open competition for the spot. He led the Sooners to victory over Auburn in his final year of play when they won the 2017 Sugar Bowl. That same season, he won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide victory, becoming the only walk-on ever to receive this award.
In the 2018 NFL Draft, Baker Mayfield made it to the first round of the draft and was selected by the Cleveland Browns as the first overall winner. His rookie contract with the Browns is a $33.1 million 4-year contract with a signing bonus of $21.9 million.
Who is Baker Mayfield’s Girlfriend?
Baker Mayfield is not only a fantastic football talent who is ready to take the NFL by storm, but the quarterback is also a handsome and very good-looking young man. He is definitely the toast of many ladies who wish he could be theirs forever. His growing fame has sparked a lot of curiosity about his personal and love life. Questions have arisen, and fans are eager to know who is the lady who won the heart of this handsome chunk.
Mayfield is currently engaged to his girlfriend Emily Wilkinson, who has been living for several months. She is a model and an Instagram star who lives in Los Angeles and works as a patient coordinator at a plastic surgery center in Beverly Hills.
The couple captured the moment of their engagement and shared it with their fans on Instagram. After their engagement, Wilkinson quit her job in Beverly Hills, California to move to Cleveland where she will be with her husband.
Many people who have followed the relationship timeline of the Cleveland Brown quarterback may have trouble reconciling the name of the above-mentioned lady because he was formerly known to be in a relationship with a lady named Morgan Mayberry. The move to Emily Wilkinson seems to be abrupt, as there is no history of separation, nor is there any stated reason for ending the relationship with the former.
Mayfield met Mayberry while studying at the University of Oklahoma, as her photos suggest, and their relationship became public in September 2016 in an Instagram posting. There is so little information about Mayberry that it is reasonable to suspect that Mayfield left her because she was “classless,” but it is known that she was a sisterhood in Oklahoma during her studies.
Baker Mayfield Height And Other Facts
As already mentioned, Baker Mayfield is a chunk and he also has a good physique. As you would expect from breakout stars, fans are always eager to learn all about their newfound celebrities and Mayfield falls into this category. The former Oklahoma quarterback is 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) tall and has a proportional weight of 215 lbs (98 kg).
Mayfield’s transfer from Texas Tech Oklahoma caused a big wave in the NCCA transfer rules. The previous rules stipulated that players transferring from one facility offering four-year programs to another would have to forgo a football season. Mayfield appealed against this decision, however, as he did not have a scholarship at Texas Tech. And although his appeal was denied, in June 2016, in accordance with Mayfield’s arguments, an adjustment was made to the rule, and today the rule is commonly referred to as the Baker Mayfield Rule.
