Lincoln Riley Loses Oklahoma Star To Transfer
Lincoln Riley lost an Oklahoma star to transfer this week.
High school star Levi Draper announced on Thursday that he is entering the NCAA Transfer Portal.
A four-star linebacker, Draper could not seem to crack Riley’s rotation with regularity and wants to use his two years of remaining eligibility wisely.
Over the course of the season, Draper recorded just three total tackles for Oklahoma.
Widely regarded as one of the most talented players to be in the 2017 recruiting class, Draper will likely find multiple suitors.

Coming out of high school Draper was the fifth ranked inside linebacker in his class.
Prior to this past season, the youngster redshirted for Oklahoma his freshman year.
On the rare occasions that Draper did earn playing time under Riley, it was primarily on the special teams unit.
A decision on where he will ultimately transfer to should come in the next few days.
