Marvin Mims on his OU Future: ‘I Definitely Want to be Here’

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Texas

Oklahoma has been through a lot in the last few weeks, particularly when it comes to the future and what it holds for the Sooners. Several players have entered the transfer portal, opted out for the NFL Draft, or been quiet about their intentions going into next season.

Marvin Mims broke the silence on his intentions for next season during Monday’s Alamo Bowl media availability.


Here is what Mims has to say about his future regarding Oklahoma.

Mims has been underutilized in 2021 after being pinned as a breakout star coming into the season after breaking the freshman record at Oklahoma for receiving touchdowns in 2020. Having him committed to playing in Jeff Lebby’s system in 2022 would be a huge boost for Brent Venables and the Sooners heading into the offseason.

If Mims sticks around, the wide receiver room could remain one of the deepest in the country next year, even with Jadon Haselwood transferring to Arkansas. Marvin Mims, Mario Willliams, and Theo Wease could stack up with nearly any trio in the country and would be a great group of targets for Caleb Williams (?) to distribute to come next fall.

Before that gets here, Mims and Oklahoma have some business to take care of, as they battle the Oregon Ducks in the Valero Alamo Bowl. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. CT on Wednesday and the Sooners are currently 7.0-point favorites.
