Sooner Intel: Charleston Rambo

Intel returns with an update on top OU receiver target Charleston Rambo.

Cedar Hill (Texas) High wide receiver Charleston Rambo hasn’t been shy about visiting Oklahoma. He came for a game last season, went back for junior day in late-January and returned two weeks after that for the OU-Kansas basketball game.

It’s clear the Sooners have made an impression on the Scout 300 prospect. What remains to be seen is whether or not OU can close the deal with Rambo.

Rambo, ranked No. 145 in the Scout 300, first became an OU target last summer when he was offered at a satellite camp in the Dallas area. OU was ahead of the curve with the offer, but he has picked up some major ones since then.

OU remains in good standing, though, because of the work put in by the coaches.

“I still talk to their entire offensive staff so it has been great,” Rambo said. “I really like the program and love the coaches.”

OU hasn’t been able to snag a commitment from Rambo just yet, and he’s ready to see some other schools. Rambo said he intends to visit Notre Dame this weekend with Cedar Hill quarterback Avery Davis.

It will be interesting to see if his demeanor changes following the visit to South Bend. Most believe Davis will end up committing to the Irish. If not on the visit, then sometime down the road. With Rambo coming with him on the trip, no way of knowing if things start trending toward Notre Dame.

Rambo said he’s not sure about attending OU’s spring game since he has seen the campus so many times in the last 12 months. He did say, however, he definitely plans to be back in Norman sometime soon.

As of right now, the Notre Dame trip is the only one officially scheduled.

Rambo has been rumored to be the 9-for-9 guy when it comes to OU’s 2017 squad and the Sooners hitting their mark with Scout 300 targets out of high school.

There’s no signs from Rambo that he is indeed that guy as he has been consistent in saying he wants to take more visits and more time before making a choice.

However, he understands full well what OU has been able to do so far for the 2017 class. Ranked No. 2 by Scout, Rambo knows the door won’t be open forever.

“This start by OU has definitely opened up a lot of eyes,” Rambo said. “It’s sort of like you better get on there soon or you’re going to miss the bus.”

Rambo said education in terms of setting him up for life after football and relationship with the coaches are some of the top priorities for him going forward when picking his top schools.

OU commits went all-in with Rambo on Wednesday night with the hashtag #WeWantRambo as it is clear who #SoonerSquad17 wants next.
