Just ahead of the championship game kicking off, there’s been some confirmation as to the latest addition to the Oklahoma Sooners football roster.
Last week, Theo Howard indicated on social media that he will be transferring to Oklahoma and continuing his playing career with the Sooners. The announcement came nearly three months after the wide receiver decided to transfer from UCLA.
Late Monday afternoon, the official Twitter account of the Oklahoma Sooners football program confirmed Howard’s signing.

Prior to the OU announcement, Howard had also considered Arizona, Baylor, Oregon State, TCU and Washington.
Howard graduated from UCLA in December, giving him immediate eligibility at OU this coming season.
In 2018, Howard earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors after catching 51 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns. Because of a pair of hand injuries that sidelined him for a sizable chunk of 2019, Moore didn’t record a catch this past season for the Bruins. Because he played in fewer than four games, he was able to use a redshirt for the 2019 season.
During his time at UCLA, Howard totaled 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns on 119 receptions. In a loss to OU in September of 2018, Howard caught two passes for 53 yards. He didn’t record a catch in the Bruins’ loss to the Sooners this past September.
