In news that should not shock any OU football fan, star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will forego his senior season and declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.
The wide out played an integral role in OU reaching three-straight College Football Playoffs, with this season’s ending in Saturday’s loss to LSU.
Lamb made the announcement on Sunday in a Twitter post, in part saying, “These past three years in Norman have been all I could have imagined and more… I will always and forever be an Oklahoma Sooner.”

Coming out of Foster High School in Richmond, Texas, Lamb was a four-star prospect who picked the Sooners over schools including Alabama and Texas. Lamb made an immediate impact as a true freshman, with 46 catches for 807 yards and seven touchdowns, which broke the freshman receiving record at Oklahoma. He was named an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention for Offensive Freshman of the Year and selected as a freshman All-American by ESPN.
In 2018, he caught 65 passes for 1,158 yards and led the Sooners with 11 touchdowns, earning second-team All-Big 12 honors. He joined Marquise Brown to become the first duo at OU to each record 1,000 receiving yards in a season.
This year, Lamb went for 1,327 receiving yards on 62 catches with 14 touchdowns. He was a first-team All-Big 12 selection and his 21.4 yards per catch ranked third in the nation behind Geraud Sanders of Air Force and Stanford’s Simi Fehoko.
The 2020 NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 23rd in Las Vegas, Nevada.
