    3 inches and 25 lbs are the only reason this kid isn't a 5 star.
    If he had that size, we're talking about Reggie Bush 2.0

    Kid has a ton of potential and should be a lot of fun in Crimson and Cream

    He's got the kind of talent that can take it to the house anytime he touches the ball

    Riley will move him all over the field. This is exactly the kind of guy you sign just for his home run ability without a specific position nailed down. Just get the ball in his hands and let him go to work.

    It appears OU is trying to sign more very elusive speedy receivers who can do a lot with the ball after the catch….
    Having 3 receivers like this on the field at the same time makes it a tough match up for about any defense.

    Honestly, I have to question his competition. They look slow and Incapable of tackling....like he was playing against entire team of Tom Worts.

    For the spread I guess it's better have a bunch of guys who are good at creating space quickly. But I'm sure Riley still wants a few 6'1 or 6'2 guys like Crabtree or Bryant. I don't expect him to go after the 6'4 WRs like we were for the last several years.

    Ceedee Lamb and Charleston Rambo are about what I expect when Riley goes after "big" wide receivers for his offense.

    I don't expect OU to go after 6'4"-6'5" guys again, unless they are fast and agile as ****. Riley's version of the Air Raid relies on space eaters, not a ton of jump balls. There aren't many possession receivers that have the feet to do what Riley asks his receivers to do.

    Mead may be an exception. As evidenced by his performance against Iowa State, he definitely has danceable feet for a guy his height.

    That's why he has Calcaterr, Stogner, and hopefully Boomer Grayson soon.

    Tight ends/Flex receivers are a class all their own. They're expected to be able to block and line up along the line if asked, just like a traditional tight end. Flexed out wide in the formation, they exist to be mismatches.

    I can see Mark Andrews lining up at the line of scrimmage; I couldn't see Dez Bryant doing the same thing, nor any of the other big possession-style receivers in traditional offenses.

    One last thought, I like the way Q and Barry Sanders handle scoring a TD. Get to the endzone and hand it to the ref. Act like you've been there before.

    I will admit that I do prefer that.

    That said, get the ball into the end zone consistently and you can do the Mexican Hat Dance for all I care.

    Yea, it seems like Riley's ideal WR lineup has one or two big tall hybrid TE types and then a bunch of Marc Clayton types.

    That gives you the versatility to have big bodies to make those goal line possession in traffic catches as well as the guys who can catch short passes in space and make defenders miss.

    Feels a lot like the Patriots WR corps honestly.

    That's also why Wes Welker will never happen again at OU: meaning a small receiver will never be overlooked if they have legit speed and good hands.

    Riley will find a way to get that receiver involved in the game plan.

    Wort is a former starting linebacker at Oklahoma for three seasons before declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft Combine.
    I'm pretty ignorant about the NFL but don't you have to be invited to the combine? I didn't know you could "declare" for it.

    Good catch. I'm sure the article meant declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft.

    In hindsight, that move worked out well for OU. He wasn't exactly getting it done on the field....opened up a scholly.

    Yes, a bunch of Mark Clayton types would be a good recipe for success. The hole in this strategy would be that there aren't many Mark Clayton's out there to be had.

    While we're at it, a bunch of Tommie Harris and Trent Williams types would be useful. Throw in a handful of Curtis Loftons, a dash of Roy Williamses and two or three Sam Bradfords too....now we're cooking.

    We shut down the cloning program a while back so we've had to resort to natural breeding which is bullshit. Heard they're testing to see if gene splicing is more effective. I believe we're in trials the last I heard.

    We've had four in a little more than 10 years (Clayton, Broyles, Shep and DeDe).

    Is it that they didn't exist, or that we didn't prioritize them across an entire receiving corps?

    I don't think Jay Norvell had a preference in wide receiver type; Lincoln Riley and Dennis Simmons apparently do have a preference--and since they've been apart of three Biletnikoff winning seasons, I'm not going to second-guess them.

    We need a tough, reliable white receiver to make those tough catches and yards

    If they are fast, tough and reliable they can be pygmies for all I care.

    that's not what she said. I'm aware someone beat me to this because it was lobbed so nicely but I couldn't resist.

    Trust me, thousands of LT'ers saw the lob and resisted going the route so obviously presented. Not that there's anything wrong with a tee-hee moment, now and again.

    Just being white qualifies you as a 'Wes Welker type' wide receiver.

    Before we get into the Lincoln only likes small WR stuff Lamb and Rambo are 6'1". They are good size for college WRs. Mead is OU's only true "big" WR tho.

    I don't think it has anything to do with being small. Riley just seems to prioritize fleet receivers. So outside of our Flex receivers, ala Mark Andrews, I can't see us going for the 6'4"-6'6" with great hands that are good on jump balls but can't stretch the field.

    If you have a chance to get a guy in that 6'4"-6'6" height range that can stretch the field? Of course you take them. That said, much like OU no longer recruits statues at QB, we have a certain type now at wide receiver. That's all most of us have been saying.

    "types" being the key word for the linguistically impaired. Meaning smaller, fast, shifty, etc. You know, like most of the WRs that we've been recruiting.
