Oklahoma Players Advocate for Team to Pursue Georgia Tech DB Wesley Walker
Oklahoma has been busy in the transfer portal this offseason, bolstering its roster after a large amount of turnover presented opportunities for talented players across the nation to come and play for the Sooners.
The defensive backfield has been an area of concern for OU in years past, and Brent Venables has certainly addressed the concerns by bringing in three highly-regarded transfers: Wyoming transfer C.J. Coldon, North Carolina transfer Trey Morrison and Louisville transfer Kani Walker.
One of the best players for Oklahoma in 2021, defensive back Key Lawrence, is suggesting that the coaching staff grab another transfer, this time a Georgia Tech defensive back in Wesley Walker.
Woodi Washington, one of Oklahoma’s starting cornerbacks in 2021, also took to Twitter advocating for the Sooners to get Walker to Norman.
Walker and Lawrence were teammates at Ensworth High School in Nashville, Tennessee, and were both highly recruited out of high school. At 6-1, 204-pounds, Walker has prototype size and speed and was the nation’s 38th ranked cornerback in the 2019 class, according to ESPN. Over the last two seasons with the Ramblin’ Wreck, Walker recorded 93 tackles, two tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, and six PBU’s in 20 games.
It in unclear whether Oklahoma will pursue Walker at this time, but given his proven ability at the Power-Five level and his relationship with Key Lawrence, it could be a match made in heaven for Walker and the Sooners.
