WR Bester working way into playing shape

Junior college transfer LaColtan Bester is just now rounding into shape after arriving in Norman in late July, after Oklahoma’s summer workouts.

“He’s getting in better shape all the time,” receivers coach Jay Norvell said. “He wasn’t in great shape when we got him, he was trying to get himself together academically. But he’s improved tremendously.”

Bester has one catch for six yards in limited action on offense against UTEP and Florida A&M. He also plays a contributing role on OU’s special teams units.

“He’s a physical guy and big athletic receiver and we’re trying to find different ways to use him,” Norvell said. “He can play in the slot, he can play outside, he’s really making a contribution on special teams. I’ve been happy with his contribution, he really likes to practice, he loves to compete and should be a good player for us.”
