The Path to Norman

Sam Iheke knew from a young age that he wanted to go to Oklahoma. He visited his brother in Norman on weekends as a kid and really enjoyed the university. Despite not having any D-1 offers out of high school, he decided that OU was the place for him. Read more on his journey here:

Career So Far

Iheke played in two games in 2016, seeing action against ULM and Kansas. The 2017 spring game was a time for him to shine; the Texas high school product caught 4 passes for 29 yards and was open a lot throughout the game. While it’s always tough to glean much from a spring game, it seemed he had the tools to contribute in 2017. However, the season saw him play in only the Tulane game.
