Oklahoma Edge Rusher Nathan Rawlins-Kibonge Enters Transfer Portal

NCAA Football: Baylor at Oklahoma

After not seeing the field this last season, Nathan Rawlins-Kinonge has announced his intentions to enter the transfer portal. The edge rusher was a mid-year enrollee coming to Oklahoma as a four-star recruit.


The Oregon native chose the Sooners over other offers from Arizona State and Stanford.

Rawlins-Hibonge was originally committed to play basketball for Washington State in June 2019 but decided to take his talents to the field rather than the court. The edge rusher didn’t start playing football until his junior year and had his senior season canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, totaling 10 career football games out of high school.

Rawlins-Hibonge is a raw talent who will still have plenty of room to grow on the field, but with the amount of talent on the Oklahoma defense, it was unlikely he’d see the field this year.

Any player who wanted to transfer had to enter the college football transfer portal by Sunday, May 1st.

The Oklahoma Sooners wrapped up their spring practice last Saturday with a record-setting crowd for a spring game with over 75,000 fans showing up in Norman for the first game under new head coach Brent Venables, who takes over the program from Lincoln Riley, who left for USC.
