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.
Position: Wide Receiver
Year: Redshirt Junior
2017: 1 catch, 10 yards
OU has a host of talented options at wide receiver. Hopefully, Iheke can carve a name out for himself and see more game time in 2018.
