Signing as a Sooner: No. 17

2013 OU wide receiver signee K.J. Young

NORMAN, Okla. — OU's final wide receiver signee hails from the Golden State.

Signing Time: 10:08 a.m.

Scout.com Ranking: Three-star

Signee: K.J. Young (WR—6'1"/182)—The Perris (Calif.) Citrus Hill receiver is a serious sleeper pick for this class. He has great hands, a powerful burst off the line of scrimmage and separates well also. Young reports a 4.6 40, which isn't unheralded but enough to get him open and break away when he does so. Look out for him.

What he's coming into at the position:Again, there's quite the competition at wide receiver, which doesn't point towards much playing time. But he's going to be a very good player in the future. For now, he's behind likely starters Jalen Saunders, Sterling Shepard and Trey Metoyer, plus possibly Jaz Reynolds. Throw in Durron Neal, Lacoltan Bester and Derrick Woods, plus all the newcomers, and it's safe to say a redshirt is a possibility.
