Redshirt freshman defensive back Bennett Okotcha has left the Sooners football team, a spokesperson confirmed to SoonerNation on Tuesday morning.

Okotcha was rated the No. 50 cornerback in the country according to ESPN coming out of Coppell (Texas) High School. Okotcha originally committed to Notre Dame, but switched to the Sooners days before signing day.

After redshirting last year, Okotcha began to turn heads during the winter workouts. Teammate Kameel Jackson even tweeted that Okotcha was going to be “the next Ed Reed.” Okotcha, however, suffered a shoulder injury and sat out in the spring. This preseason, he failed to climb up the depth chart.
