With the end of the regular season, the Oklahoma Sooners await their bowl situation and work to lock in their 2023 recruiting class. Another important process they have to go through is assessing what their roster will look like in 2023.
One area that the Sooners will need to address is the wide receiver position. According to 247Sports’ Mike Roach, wide receiver Theo Wease is expected to enter the transfer portal.
Wease caught 64 passes for 1,033 yards and 10 touchdowns across three seasons in Norman.
Wease had a career game against Texas Tech, going for three receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. He had multiple receptions with a high degree of difficulty, making plays in 50-50 situations.
Wease returned in 2022 after suffering an injury in fall camp of 2021. Despite his big game in the finale, Wease experienced his lowest numbers since his freshman year in 2019. On the season, he played just 366 snaps, fourth among wide receivers in 2022 behind Marvin Mims, Drake Stoops, and Jalil Farooq.
If he indeed transfers, in his final season in Norman, Wease caught 19 passes on 34 targets for 378 yards and four touchdowns. He was sixth in targets and receptions and tied for third on the team in touchdowns.
When given the opportunity, Theo Wease was a big part of the passing offense, tying for the team lead in receptions in 2020. With the potential that Marvin Mims could declare for the NFL draft, the loss of Wease would be huge.
