Oklahoma Lands Former Arkansas WR Mike Woods Via Transfer Portal

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Sooners have beefed up their wide receiver corps. Former Arkansas wide receiver Mike Woods announced on Twitter on Friday he will be transferring to OU.

 

Woods caught 32 receptions for 619 yards and five touchdowns for Arkansas in 2020, and comes to Norman with two years of eligibility left. But Woods really shined as the season progressed with 399 receiving yards and four touchdowns in the Razorbacks final five games. Woods ranked second in the SEC in average yards per catch last season (19.34).

As we noted this week, OU is, by its own standards, relatively thin at wide receiver right now.

Theo Wease has been injured this spring, and Trejan Bridges has been dealing with some of his own problems. The Sooners also lost a pair of talented pass catchers to the transfer portal in Theo Howard and Charleston Rambo. Oh, and Obi Obialo has left the football team.

That’s why we wrote that freshman Mario Williams could be the next true freshman star in Norman. However, Woods is now in the fold and will be able to be a key piece right away for Spencer Rattler.

According to 247Sports, Woods was a three-star prospect and ranked the No. 90 WR in the Class of 2018.
