Oklahoma Sooners Football | Graduate Transfer & WR Theo Howard Suffers Setback

Rich DeCray


After making an egregious error by publishing the wrong name in the initial report here at Heartland Sports, I’m writing a second offering with the corrected information.

The Oklahoma Sooners possess a ton of talent at the receiver position, however most of group lacks significant experience on the field. Attempting to add not only depth but a plug-n-play type player, the coaching staff assessed the names available in the transfer portal. Mutually interested in Theo Howard from UCLA, the receiver joined the team.

Making preparations for the 2020 campaign, many expected Howard to contribute as Lincoln Riley started a fourth quarterback in four years. According to Brandon Drumm of 247Sports, the graduate transfer suffered a set back. Tearing his Achilles’ tendon, Howard is expected to miss the first part of the upcoming season.

Sitting out in 2019, Howard accounted for 119 receptions in three years with the Bruins. Amassing 1,359 yards of offense, the receiver crossed the goal line nine times. With a single year of eligibility remaining, Sooner Nation hopes for a speedy recovery.
