Oklahoma Loses Tight End To Transfer

Oklahoma’s depth at tight end took a hit on Monday when Taylor McNamara announced he is transferring.

Tight end Taylor McNamara announced via social media on Monday that he is transferring from the University of Oklahoma, and will be playing at USC in the fall. McNamara will bring some much-needed depth to the Trojans.

With only one career catch, McNamara played in 11 total games as a Sooner. He was forced to redshirt his freshman year after being sidelined with an injury. As a redshirt freshman he saw some limited playing time, but was expected to contribute more in 2014 as a redshirt sophomore. However former OU QB Blake Bell was moved to tight end, and earned the top spot on the depth chart.

A Southern California native out of San Diego, CA, McNamara was a 4-star recruit and was even ranked the 189th overall recruit in his class. He’s on track to graduate in May, and will be eligible to play right away as a redshirt junior.

USC could use the help too. The Trojans have three tight ends on the roster with a total of three catches between them.

The move leaves Oklahoma’s tight end cupboard a little bare though. The Sooners are left with three tight ends on the roster. Redshirt junior Connor Knight is fraternal twin to Oklahoma QB Trevor Knight, and saw a little playing time in 2013, and 2014. Although most of his time on the field last season was as OU’s long snapper. Carson Meier came to OU as a 3-star recruit, but was redshirted last year as a freshman. Dalton Wood is part of the 2015 recruiting class. He last walked onto a football field as a QB, but will play tight end for the Sooners. Jay Boulware, OU’s tight ends coach, has his work cut out for him this season.
