Oklahoma senior linebacker David Ugwoegbu has entered the transfer portal, On3's Matt Zenitz reported on Monday.

Ugwoegbu started all 12 games for the Sooners in 2022 and ranked second on the team in tackles with 101. He received an All-Big 12 honorable mention.

The Katy, Texas, native was a four-star recruit in the 2019 class, per 247Sports' Composite rankings. He was the No. 25-ranked defensive end and No. 382 prospect overall.

He is the Sooners' 14th departure to the transfer portal since the regular season's end. Oklahoma earned a commitment from Indiana transfer linebacker Dasan McCullough on Dec. 12 and signed four-stars Samuel Omosigho and Lewis Carter and three-star Phil Picciotti on early signing day on Dec. 22.
