On September 6th Dede Westbrook caught 14 passes for 370 yards and three touchdowns for Blinn Community College in their 72-65 shootout win over Tyler Junior College. Next September he'll hope to bring that type of impact to Oklahoma's offense, as the nation's #3 JUCO wide receiver official signed a financial aid agreement with Oklahoma on Wednesday.

A four-star recruit by Rivals, Westbrook (6-1/170) led the junior college ranks with 1,487 yards and 13 touchdowns to earn First Team All-American honors by the NJCAA. He'll immediately boost Oklahoma's wide receiver corps (which may or may not have the services of DGB) that struggled in the absence of all-conference junior receiver Sterling Shepard due to a groin injury.

In addition to Westbrook, the Sooners also reached into the JUCO ranks for offensive lineman Jamal Danley and corner William Johnson. Danly is also a four-star recruit and was a second team JUCO All-American at East Mississippi Community College. The 6-5/315 right guard enjoyed a 24-0 record at EMCC and was a part of back-to-back national championships.

Three-star corner William Johnson completes the trifecta of JUCO signees on Wednesday. At 6-1/175, Johnson picked off two passes and recorded 10 pass breakups for Monroe College in New Rochelle, NY. Both Danley and Johnson will have the opportunity step into positions that will have immediately voids following the bowl game. Oklahoma will lose the majority of their offensive line and Johnson is expected to step into the competition to replace for the soon departed corner Julian Wilson.

Oklahoma also announced the early arrival of freshmen Rodney Anderson and Bobby Evans who will be mid-year enrollees. Both are four-star recruits and both will have the opportunity to get on the field this spring. Anderson (6-1/205) ran for 2,308 yards and 34 touchdowns at Katy High School (TX).

With a great combination of size, speed, and power, Anderson is ranked as the #3 running back in the 2015 class by Rivals.com.

Evans (6'5/270) is the nation's #31 offensive tackle prospect by Rivals.com.
