Sooners Illustrated breaks down the Oklahoma roster, one player at a time

Second-year receiver Dahu Green is still looking for his first career reception

During the next two months leading up to the Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Sooners Illustrated will breakdown the Oklahoma Sooners roster, starting with Jarvis Baxter (No. 1 on the roster) and working all the way down to Marquise Overton (No. 98) and the incoming freshmen.

We’ll look at last year’s performance, the best-case scenario for this season – without projecting injuries – and what each player means to the short-term or long-term success of the Sooners.

No. 18 – WR Dahu Green (6-foot-4, 201 pounds)


What happened last year: After being a late addition to the recruiting class, Green appeared in seven games as a freshman but didn’t record a catch. He was targeted, and to some, he should have recorded a catch or two – and maybe even a touchdown. He was the most used freshman receiver last season.

Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 3. During the off-season, Green appeared to fall in the depth chart. It seems as though he was temporarily passed by fellow freshman AD Miller. He’s a depth receiver heading into the season, but he has the tools and potential to be Oklahoma’s starter opposite Dede Westbrook. Anything he really contributes would be a plus in his second year on campus.

Best-case scenario for this season: At 6-foot-4 with solid speed, Green has the measurables to make an impact on the field for Oklahoma. His hands still need work, but if he can make that jump then double-digit catches and his first career touchdown is well within reach.
