Stoops: Sooners see potential in Bester
By Brandon Chatmon
Finding a way to create additional depth at receiver became a high priority for Oklahoma after the Sooners suspended receivers Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks on May 20.
Those suspensions changed the life of LaColton Bester, who went from unsigned receiver prospect to signing with OU in a matter of weeks. At 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Bester brings excellent size to the Sooners receiving corps. And he has OU’s head coach excited about his ability.
“LaColton is a strong, big player,” Bob Stoops said. “He has size, he has strength. He’s just what we needed to be honest with you. We felt incredibly lucky to have a chance to be in position with him. I think he’s going to do really well.”
