Virginia Graduate Transfer Guard R.J. Proctor Picks Oklahoma

The rich just keep getting richer. At least that how it seems for Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley who seems to have mastered the art of the transfer portal.

The Sooners have added to their 2019 class, by way of Virginia, offensive lineman R.J. Proctor. As a graduate transfer, Proctor will have one year of eligibility left and has chosen to close out his collegiate career with Oklahoma.

In UVA’s 28-0 win over South Carolina, in the Belk Bowl, Proctor graded out by Pro Football Focus (PFF) as highest UVA offensive player in pass pro (85.7) and third best in run blocking (72.4) while playing every snap of that game.

Florida State, Penn State, and Texas all made a push to land him but in the end the pursuit of a national championship brought him to Norman.

With 36 game appearances (12 starts) under his belt, Proctor gives OU a solid boost towards the offensive line rebuild as Creed Humphrey will no longer be the most experienced player returning on the line.

At 6-4/335, Proctor has the type of frame that puts him in line with other former offensive linemen who have gone on to the next level. However, his strongest asset may be in his versatility as he’s capable of playing multiple spots on the offensive line.
