The Path to Norman
Jayden Gibson, a Florida high school football product, was a long-time Florida commit. When the new staff arrived in Norman, they made Gibson a priority. He went to Norman for an official visit in early December and committed to the Sooners in short order. Gibson rejoined former OU QB Nick Evers, another former Florida commit, and along with Nic Anderson gave the Sooners an impressive freshman receiver class.

Stats via Soonersports.com
Gibson had a slow first season; 2023 should be much more active. The Oklahoma receiver room is short on experience, and in need of guys stepping up. Gibson was listed right behind starting receiver Jalil Farooq this week on the depth chart. His size makes him an exciting option who will have plenty of chances this fall.
