Another splash pick up for Oklahoma in the transfer portal.
The Sooners gained the commitment of Arizona State transfer wide receiver LV Bunkley-Shelton on Thursday night.
As a redshirt freshman last season with the Sun Devils, Bunkley-Shelton had 33 receptions for 418 yards and two touchdowns.
Out of Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, CA, he committed to Arizona State as a 4-star prospect rated as the No. 27 wide receiver in the 2020 recruiting class in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Bunkley-Shelton took visits to both Oklahoma and Kansas in the last month, with the decision coming down to those two schools, according to 247Sports.
“It was honestly just a gut feeling, that’s what it came down to,” he told 247Sports. “I liked both coaching staffs and both campuses a lot and had two really good visits.
“OU just stuck out a little more for me. They came after me hard right when I went into the portal and made me feel like a priority. I really liked it there, it’s a big time program and I think I’ll fit in really well there.”
While the top of the receiver room is largely solidified with Marvin Mims, Theo Wease and Drake Stoops, both Bunkley-Shelton and Hester supply welcomed depth to the position heading into Brent Venables’ first season in Norman.
