Career so Far
Atkinson took a redshirt season in 2019 and played against Oklahoma State in 2020. This spring, Atkinson earned a scholarship.
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: Redshirt Senior
2020: 1 GP
Colt has played both quarterback and receiver at Oklahoma. This season, he will look to contribute at receiver as a scholarship player. After last season’s receiver play, which left the staff less than thrilled, there are minutes to earn. Hopefully Atkinson can see more minutes in his last season in crimson and cream.
