OU football: Charleston Rambo ready to make leap, but Sooners 'not asking' him to be CeeDee Lamb
After a productive sophomore season a year ago, Charleston Rambo is ready to step into a role as the Sooners’ top receiving option, outside receivers coach Dennis Simmons said.
Rambo had 743 yards and five touchdowns receiving last year, leading OU in receptions early before CeeDee Lamb came on strong.
“I’m not asking him to be CeeDee. I’m not asking him to be Marquise (Brown). I’m not asking him to be Dede (Westbrook),” Simmons said. “I’m asking him to be Charleston. I think he understands that. All four of those guys have special gifts and different skill sets and different talents. He needs to be consistent and play at a level where he can showcase his.
“I think if he does that, you guys will be like, ‘Do you have another Z that’s going to be like Charleston?”
