Sooners land big receiving commitment

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford has helped his team fill one of its biggest needs.

The Tulsa World reports that Bradford's persistence helped the Sooners land wide receiver Cameron Kenney, who produced 83 receptions in two seasons at Garden City (Kan.) Community College.

Kenney committed early to Auburn, but changed his mind after Tommy Tuberville was fired. He considered South Carolina and Georgia along with the Sooners, but apparently heard when he wanted when he met with Bradford during his recruiting trip two weeks ago. Kenney committed to the Sooners over the weekend after visiting Georgia.

His arrival is especially huge for the Sooners considering they lose senior receivers Manuel Johnson, Juaquin Iglesias and Quentin Chaney. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Kenney will immediately challenge for playing time with Oklahoma and could help provide playmaking balance to go with top returning receivers Ryan Broyles and tight end Jermaine Gresham.
