Wide receiver A.D. Miller has cancelled his plans to transfer to Illinois and will remain at Oklahoma, according to Lincoln Riley. That was just one of the many nuggets of information Riley announced Wednesday during his media session to kickoff spring practices.
“We expect to have him back here in the next couple of days,” Riley said. “He should be on the practice field with us pretty quickly. As has been well documented, he explored the transfer portal and looked around a couple of spots, but in the last several weeks he has made a decision that he wants to be back at Oklahoma and finish what he started here. I give the kid a ton of credit because it’s not easy to come back.”
Miller had been announced as a graduate transfer to the Fighting Illini in January. This is the second time that he’s reneged on Illinois. He initially committed to the Illini in July 2014 when he was being recruited out of high school. The next February he committed to play for the Sooners.
A 6-3/193 product of Bishop Dunne High School (Dallas, TX), Miller was the 110th ranked prospect in the state of Texas and the nation’s 101st ranked receiver in the class of 2015.
He has recorded 21 catches for 236 yards and four touchdowns over 16 games at Oklahoma. He recorded seven catches for 75 yards and two scores while playing in seven games last season.
