Oklahoma's offensive outlook for next season continued to improve Monday with an oral committment from junior college receiver Cameron Kenney.
Kenney caught 86 passes for 1,203 yards and 8 touchdowns in two seasons at Garden City (Kan.) Community College--where tackle Phil Loadholt and linebacker J.R. Bryant also played. He's a former soccer player reportedly with 4.48 speed--which is ok but not great. But at 6-2 and 195 pounds, he apparently has strength and size and is pegged as an explosive jumper.
Kenny, as all JC transfers are expected to do, should compete for a starting wideout position in the mix with senior Adron Tennell, junior Brandon Caleb, and sophomores Dejuan Miller and Jameel Owens--from whom big things are expected. Caleb can also play in the slot, where Ryan Broyles returns and where backup running back Mossis Madu likely will appear in an effort to get him on the field.
Kenney played just one year of high school football, so logically still has an upside that should come out under receivers coach Jay Norvell. He withdrew a comittment to Auburn after the coaching change and committed after visiting OU and Georgia in January.--Mike Jones.
