Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Stacey Wilkins will return to the Sooners in 2021 after opting out of the 2020 season, according to SoonerScoop's Bob Przybylo.

Wilkins never officially announced his decision to sit out for the year, but he strangely disappeared from OU's online roster in October. Wilkins was expected by some to be a starter in 2020, but was listed as the backup to freshman Anton Harrison on Oklahoma's initial depth chart.

In Wilkins' absence, OU ended up going with Harrison and redshirt senior Erik Swenson at the position for the majority of the 2020 season. Yet, Wilkins return in 2021 could benefit an offensive line group that is losing center Creed Humphrey and right tackle Adrian Ealy to the NFL.
