The Oklahoma Sooners continue to own the transfer portal, and this time they’re poaching from another SEC school, landing Kevontre Bradford from LSU.
As a freshman at LSU last season, Bradford didn’t play until the final two games of the season and finished the season with just 10 rushes for 58 yards and three receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown.
Bradford played high school football at Lancaster, TX, where he was a 4-star prospect and a Top 20 prospect in the state per 247Sports, who also ranked him as a Top 15 running back in the country in the Class of 2020. During his senior year of high school he racked up 1,563 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns.
Bradford chose LSU out of high school over offers from Texas, Oklahoma State, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Baylor, Kansas State, Texas Tech, USC, Ohio State, Florida State and others.
Bradford does have a legal history to note, as he was arrested on Dec. 22 for an alleged shoplifting incident at a Baton Route Walmart store. He was processed and booked at the West Baton Rouge Detention Center and released on a misdemeanor summons, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate. WBRZ reported that Bradford later characterized it as “a misunderstanding.”
Bradford is the second SEC running back to join the Sooners this offseason, joining Eric Gray, who came in from Tennessee.
