Littered with talent all over the roster, the Oklahoma Sooners remain primed for yet another run at the Big 12 Championship. Adding depth at numerous offensive positions and experience at other, several names continue to fly under the radar. Here are three offensive players who could potentially have a breakout year.
Charleston Rambo | RS Sophomore | Wide Receiver
After the Annual Spring Game in 2018, we labeled Charleston Rambo as a name to watch. However, the praise at the wide receiver position often fell on others as Rambo recorded a mere eight receptions on the season. Setting a career high of three in the College Football Playoff, Rambo showcased the things to come. Entering the upcoming year with new found confidence despite playing alongside two star receivers, Rambo’s numbers should increase drastically as a potential consistent option.
Erik Swenson | Redshirt Junior | Offensive Lineman
The Oklahoma Sooners lost four starting offensive lineman at the end of the season to the NFL. Now looking to regroup, an unlikely candidate emerged as the leading target for left tackle. Rarely utilized during his first three season on campus, Erik Swenson made a name fore himself during the spring. Hoping to continue the trend, Swenson holds an opportunity to cement himself in the starting lineup as an upperclassman and physical entity. There’s plenty of competition and talent surrounding the line but has the tools necessary to not only earn playing time, but also to make an impact on the field.
Brayden Willis | Sophomore | Fullback
It’s no secret that Lincoln Riley likes to implement the fullback into the game plan. Often finding success with a versatile athlete, there’s potential for Brayden Willis to fill an immediate need. After the departure of the previous starter, the position remains up for grabs. Despite a single reception last year for 29 yards, Willis appears to be the best candidate. An easy way onto the field is undoubtedly the ability to block. But in Riley’s offense, fans and coaches alike are looking for the fullback to catch passes as well. Willis is one name to keep an eye on for the remainder of his career at the University of Oklahoma.
