CeeDee Lamb and Charleston Rambo have established themselves as Oklahoma’s top receiving targets through four games.

In third place for the Sooners: freshman wideout Jadon Haselwood, who has 12 catches for 192 yards and a touchdown.

Standing out in OU's offense hasn't been easy. Even reliable targets, like Grant Calcaterra and Lee Morris, have been lost in the shuffle at times.

Haselwood came into the season as one of three former five-star high school wideouts and has separated from the pack.

He had a career-high six catches against Texas Tech on Saturday and was on the receiving end of Riley’s favorite pass that Jalen Hurts made in the game.

“We had a little bootleg, he had to step up, they brought an edge and he had to really step up,” Riley said. “It was one he had to really trust it on. He couldn’t even see the route. It was one that, a couple months ago he probably doesn’t make here. Not that he doesn’t know it, but there was a trust. And then to deliver the kind of ball that he did was pretty good. That was my favorite.”
