Oklahoma lost some firepower to its offense this week, as wide receiver Jaylon Robinson has announced his transfer decision. The former four-star recruit entered the NCAA transfer portal back in May.
In his freshman season with the Sooners, Robinson had just three receptions for 28 yards. Playing time this past season wasn’t easy for wide receivers in large part because Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb were on the field almost every down.
There’s a strong chance Robinson would see more snaps in his sophomore season, but the Texas native has opted to go to another program.
Brandon Helwig of UCFSports.com broke the news involving Robinson’s decision.
Robinson will transfer to UCF after only one season at Oklahoma. He’ll join an offense that has a strong track record of developing players with his skillset.
The Knights weren’t in the mix for Robinson during his initial recruitment, but now, they’ll gladly take the speedy wideout and his three years of eligibility remaining.

UCF has put itself on the map in terms of being a force in college football. Landing Robinson from the transfer market proves how respected the program has become.
Earlier this year, UCF also added former Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush. Clearly, the coaching staff has had success adding marquee players from the transfer portal.
