Oklahoma State Lands Oklahoma Sooners Transfer Wide Receiver


Oklahoma State takes a receiver away from Norman.

On Sunday, Oklahoma transfer Gavin Freeman announced his commitment to OSU. With an already loaded offense returning, Freeman gives OSU another weapon for Alan Bowman to throw at.

Freeman has played in every OU game over the past two seasons but hasn’t seen the production and role he wants.

In 2023, Freeman was a solid contributor to the Sooners’ offense, with 19 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown. His best performance last season came in the Sooners’ win against Arkansas State, where he caught four passes for 19 yards and a touchdown. Freeman also showed off his other skills in that matchup, scoring another touchdown on a punt return.

Before last season, Freeman’s role was further limited, but he still had some breakout moments. His most impactful game was a win against Kansas. Freeman caught a pass for a career-high 41 yards, one of his only three catches that season.

In 2022, Freeman also showed his dual-threat ability by rushing seven times for 71 yards and a touchdown. At 6-foot-4 and 189 pounds, Freeman’s elusiveness could be on display again next season in Stillwater.

While some athletes, including Trace Ford last year, have transferred from OSU to OU, Freeman is flipping that script. The commitment is a big win for Mike Gundy’s team as it looks to pilot a new Big 12 next season.

Last season, OSU finished 10-4 and made a trip to Arlington for the Big 12 Championship. With a plethora of returning talent on both ends of the court, OSU looks to be a conference contender again next season.

Additions like Freeman only increase the Cowboys’ chances of winning their first conference title since 2011 and possibly making their first College Football Playoff.
