Oklahoma WR John Humphrey To Transfer

The Sooners unexpectedly lost some depth at the receiver position.

Oklahoma receiver John Humphrey announced on Twitter that he is calling it quits in Norman after just one year.

Humphrey, a redshirt sophomore this year, came to Oklahoma as a three-star speedster out of League City, TX. A member of the 2015 recruiting class, he stood out last season on the practice squad and was even named the Scout Team Player of the Year. Sooner CB Jordan Thomas even gave Humphrey credit for helping him prepare to face the league’s top receiver, Baylor’s Corey Coleman.

His departure is a surprise. It was clear that OU valued his talents and with a young receiver corps looking to replace some key talent, he was expected to receive plenty of playing time this season.

Exactly what prompted the decision is unclear, but it doesn’t look like coach Bob Stoops will be placing any restrictions on where Humphrey will be allowed to transfer.

It is too early to know where Humphrey will end up, but Arkansas and Baylor could be high on his list. He was even committed to Baylor at one point during his recruitment. Of course, he would have to sit out this season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, should he go to another Division I program.
