Center Gabe Ikard says receiver Sterling Shepard and Ryan Broyles has similarities: Star receiver Ryan Broyles may have moved on to the NFL, but his successor may have arrived in a new young receiver. At least, that’s what center Gabe Ikard is hinting.

Sterling Shepard, a former Heritage Hall standout and the son of late former OU receiver Derrick Shepard, has impressed Ikard.

“He’s going to play a lot of good football here,” Ikard said. “I’m excited to see all the plays he can make. I daresay he’s got some very similar movements to an 85 that we lost last year.” (The Oklahoman)
