Introducing 2017 WR Rubell Goe

OU might have to return to Bishop McGuinness because of 2017 wide receiver Rubell Goe.

Oklahoma hasn’t looked in the direction of Oklahoma City Bishop McGuinness since center Gabe Ikard, but the Sooners could return there this season.

Wide receiver Rubell Goe, a Class of 2017 prospect, made a statement last year, and he’s looking to build off of that this season.

Goe had 36 catches for 605 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore but said he’s a much different player than he was last season.

“I got a lot stronger,” Goe said. “That was one big thing I worked on. We spent a lot of this summer throwing a lot so I think our passing game is going to be improved.”

Goe was hampered by an injury in the spring, which didn’t really allow him to hit the camp circuit as hard as he would have liked. One camp he was able to attend was OU’s elite camp back in June, and he fared very well.

Goe said schools like SMU, Kansas State and Tulsa have shown interest. Provided he can stay healthy and show what he can do, it wouldn’t surprise anybody to see more schools jump into that mix.

What Goe showed in a scrimmage last weekend is exactly what he wanted to display. He said his strength is going up there and getting the ball. He did that a number of times, including for a long touchdown reception.

“If it’s in the air, I feel like I should be able to go get it,” Goe said.

A native of Oklahoma City, Goe has a clear choice of his favorite when it comes to the Bedlam rivalry between OU and Oklahoma State.

“OU,” said Goe with a smile. “I’m OU all the way.”

For now, though, the focus is on his junior season. He’s not worried about the recruiting process and said the team is going to come first.
