Oklahoma senior defensive back Jaden Davis has announced that he will enter the NCAA Transfer Portal according to a post on Twitter.
After four seasons in Norman, Davis will spend his final year of eligibility with another program in hopes of finding his way onto the field more consistently.
Over four years, Davis appeared in 47 career games, making 22 starts at cornerback for the Sooners. In that time, he totaled 102 tackles, one interception, and 10 pass breakups.
In 2022, Davis appeared in 10 games for Oklahoma, totaling 32 tackles and two PBU’s. However, after he suffered an injury early in November, allowing CJ Colden to step in and shine. Even when Davis was eligible to return, Colden held on the starting gig, while his predecessor had to watch from the sideline.
As a former four-star defensive back out of Fort Lauderdale, Davis was a part of the Sooners 2019 recruiting class and was the nation’s No. 25 cornerback.
Oklahoma has struggled with consistency in the secondary over the past several years, with Davis being one of the main names that comes up in that conversation.
With several new names in the room, such as incoming freshmen Makari Vickers and Jasiah Wagoner and JUCO transfer Kendal Dolby, OU will feature a lot of new names in the secondary in 2023, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing for the folks in Norman.
