The Oklahoma Sooners have not been shy about retooling their roster in the early stages of the 2022 offseason. While they’ve lost some players to the transfer portal, they’ve worked to add some as well.

At the tight end spot, the Sooners lost Austin Stogner to South Carolina through the portal and Jeremiah Hall declared for the NFL draft. Though those were significant losses, the Sooners brought in tight end Daniel Parker as a transfer from Missouri. Then they received even better news when Brayden Willis elected to stick around for one more year.

As it seems with every position, the Brent Venables’ Sooners are looking to add as much talent as possible. Per Clint Brewster of 247Sports, the Oklahoma Sooners have shown interest in recent transfer portal entrant, tight end Michael Trigg.

Trigg was considered a four-star tight end in the class of 2021 and committed to play for the USC Trojans. Now he’s on the move, and the Sooners might be the team that could reap the rewards of the athletic tight end.

Trigg played in four games for the Trojans and missed time due to a knee injury that didn’t require surgery. In the four games he played, Trigg caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown.

Here’s what 247Sports’ Barton Simmons had to say about Trigg as a recruit.

Extremely productive pass catcher against shoddy competition. Natural hands catcher. Good body control and ball skills. Easy athlete that can be dangerous after the catch and has played quarterback in a run-heavy role. Isn’t asked to play in-line but has shown some willingness to block in H-back roles and is active on defense. High end basketball player. – Simmons, 247Sports

Although Oklahoma wasn’t in on Trigg during his recruitment process, Joe Jon Finley was part of Ole Miss’ recruitment of Trigg. That could create an open door for the Sooners to make a play for the former USC Trojans tight end.
