With the college football regular season coming to an end, it’s time for names to start entering the transfer portal. And in Norman, Sooners wide receiver D.J. Graham announced on X, formerly Twitter, on Saturday night that he would be leaving the program and exploring his options via the portal.
Graham wrote in part, “This decision was very difficult, and I didn’t make it lightly. I want to thank my former coaches; Lincoln Riley, Cale Gundy, and Kerry Cook, who recruited me to this great football program, The University of Oklahoma – Boomer Sooner! I also sincerely appreciate the current staff… I am honored to have been a Sooner, but I am very eager to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.”
Graham has two years of eligibility remaining after wrapping up his career at Oklahoma playing in 28 games, all as a defensive back, before switching to wide receiver last season, but he didn’t have any catches. As a defensive back, his best season came in 2021 when he made 10 starts and had 37 tackles.
His most memorable play was this incredible interception against Nebraska during the 2021 season.
Graham played wideout in high school and receiving all-district honors at the position at Keller Central High School (TX). He is a former four-star prospect by ESPN and three-star recruit by 247Sports and Rivals also held offers from Baylor, Georgia, LSU and Ohio State, among others.
The transfer portal will open up on December 4th.
