Sooners Land Badet

Sooner Scoop

On Tuesday morning Oklahoma got the answer it was looking to with one of the country's more coveted grad transfers, former Kentucky receiver Jeff Badet. The senior to be announced his decision to transfer to Oklahoma after taking trips to Norman as well as West Virginia and Troy and prior to expected trips to Virginia Tech and Oregon.

The trip to Norman in early March really seemed to put the Sooners at the top of his pecking order, even if he wasn't ready to say it at the time.

"(The visit) went really well. It went really, really well," Badet said following his visit. "Really as far as the town, for some reason I was expecting a small little country town. So that aspect of the visit was what really wowed me. The city was really nice, I got a chance to drive to Oklahoma City and see how really nice it was. That was one part of the visit I really liked and could possibly see myself living there.

"It’s a program that is really established, over the 18 years that Bob Stoops has been there, he has had that tradition of winning. I’m used to building a program, Oklahoma is a program that has already been through that phase – that would really help if a guy was to make a decision. It shows you everything they have done through the past years."

The skilled receiver put up 31-receptions for 670-yards and five touchdowns in 2016 before announcing he'd be transferring in mid-January.

Look for more from Badet very soon.
