Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners don’t miss a beat. As soon as one player enters the transfer portal, they’ve already got a plan in place to retool and replace. We saw it with Caleb Williams and that’s what happened just days after Latrell McCutchin entered the portal.
As they continue to build the defense, the Oklahoma Sooners landed a commitment from Wyoming transfer cornerback C.J. Coldon on Sunday.
After playing in just six games over his first two seasons for Wyoming, Coldon came on strong in 2020 and 2021, starting all 19 games over those two seasons. In 2021, He led the team with 902 snaps and pass breakups with 10. Coldon was fourth in total tackles with 67 and added 4.5 tackles for loss.
According to Pro Football Focus, Coldon allowed a completion percentage of 59.1% on 66 targets.
He’ll come in and compete with Woodi Washington and D.J. Graham for snaps on the outside at cornerback, but he has played snaps in the slot and as a box player according to Pro Football Focus.
The Oklahoma Sooners added a player that immediately provides depth, but has a ton of starting experience at cornerback in the MAC. In the spring and fall, he could challenge to start for the Oklahoma Sooners.
