Oklahoma's immediate needs at wide receiver have caught the attention of Cameron Kenney of Garden City (Kan.) C.C., who was offered a scholarship by the Sooners on Wednesday.

Kenney told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Oklahoma and Georgia are at the top of his list.

"It's Oklahoma ... What else can you say? They just played for the national championship and they said they needed me," Kenney told the Journal-Constitution. "I'm trying to keep a [low profile] about this. But it's exciting."

Oklahoma will lose senior receivers Juaquin Iglesias, Manuel Johnson and Quentin Chaney from this season's roster. Iglesias led the team with 74 receptions, Johnson produced 42 catches and Chaney averaged a team-high 17.4 yards per catch on 29 grabs.

The Sooners' late offer has led to a change for Kenney, who said he will cancel a scheduled recruiting trip to South Carolina this weekend to come to Norman and visit Sooner coaches.

Kenney, an early Auburn commitment, still is considering the Tigers along with Kansas State. He plans to visit Georgia last among his finalists.

The return of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford intrigued Kenney, but he said Bradford's decision won't factor into his final decision.

"I'm going with the place that feels like the best fit for me," he said.
