The Path to Norman

Joseph Weté was a highly-rated recruit out of Washington, DC. He attended Gonzaga High School, where former OU QB Caleb Williams played. With offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, and other top schools, it seemed like his recruitment would drag out closer to signing day. However, summer 2018 saw good news come Oklahoma’s way, as Weté committed to the Sooners.

Career so Far

Weté played in one game early in the 2019 season against South Dakota, taking a redshirt season.

In 2020, Joseph played in almost every game of the season, mostly on special teams.

2021 was a step back, with only one game played on the year.

This Season

Joseph Weté has now been at OU for three seasons, but has precious few snaps to show for it. It won’t be easy to start earning more this season, with plenty of options at linebacker ahead of him. Weté has three seasons of eligbility remaining; he will continue providing depth this season while working toward increased playing time in future years.
