Oklahoma wide receiver John Humphrey transferring to ASU

After sitting out his freshman season at Oklahoma, wide receiver John Humphrey will transfer to Arizona State.

Todd Graham's hiring of Oklahoma wide receiver coach Jay Norvell in February isn't the only Sooner the Sun Devils are bringing aboard this offseason.

On Monday afternoon, former Oklahoma wide receiver John Humphrey, Jr. announced on Twitter his decision to transfer to Arizona State.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Humphrey was recruited by Norvell to play under Bob Stoops in Norman, and Humphrey is following Norvell to the Sun Devils' program.

Though Humphrey must sit out the 2016 season at ASU, he will have three years of eligibility remaining and can take the field beginning in the fall of 2017. 

Humphrey was a three-star recruit out of Clear Falls High School in League City, Texas, and Scout ranked Humphrey as the No. 83 overall receiver for the Class of 2015. Humphrey was a mid-year enrollee at Oklahoma and reportedly chose the Sooners over the likes of Cal, Clemson, Louisville and Notre Dame among others.

Humphrey sat out the 2015 season at Oklahoma, but made his presence felt within the program as he earned the team's Offensive Scout Player of the Year award. 

Humphrey joins a young wide receiver unit that features three new recruits who were part of ASU's 2016 Signing Class. Aside from highly touted in-state prospect N'Keal Harry, the Sun Devils also brought in converted quarterbacks Jeremy Smith and Kyle Williams this offseason.

Still, the Sun Devil face a scholarship deficit at wide receiver and the addition of Humphrey helps solidify the future at the position moving forward.
