This Season

Melson is listed at receiver and could earn minutes there in 2022 in a position group with plenty of questions. However, he also looks ready to contribute at holder this season; Melson and Josh Plaster have both worked at the position this spring. The Sooners legacy appears ready to earn game snaps heading into 2022.
