As the summer months approached, Oklahoma knew it would need additional depth at receiver. So the Sooners looked toward the junior college ranks and signed LaColtan Bester out of East Mississippi College.
“He’s a hard worker,” fellow receiver Trey Metoyer said. “I know talent when I see it and I’ve been around him for a while. He can go, he’s got speed and he’s physical.”
The junior missed summer workouts in Norman but it hasn’t stopped him from earning a spot on the Sooners two-deep. He’s listed as the backup to Metoyer at one of OU’s three receiver spots.
“LaColtan is strong, fast and competitive,” receiver Kenny Stills said. “A lot of times a run play will go the opposite way and you’ll see him on film trying to take someone’s head off. He’s always being competitive and he’s added that to our bunch.”
