Charleston Rambo who transferred to Miami from Oklahoma during the offseason has been named the top transfer wide receiver by Rivals.Com. Rambo is expected to provide the Miami Hurricanes offense with a consistent downfield threat they were often missing during the 2020 season.

In three seasons with the Sooners, Rambo had 76 receptions for 1,180 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Rambo had his best season with Oklahoma in 2019 recording 43 receptions for 743 yards and five TDs. Rambo was the number two WR for Oklahoma in 2019 behind CeeDee Lamb who was a 2020 NFL first-round pick.

Rambo was a four-star signee with the Sooners in 2016. Rivals ranked Rambo as the 13th best player in Texas and 12th best WR in 2020. Rambo is the third highest-rated WR on the Miami roster behind Mark Pope and Jeremiah Payton according to the 247 ratings. Pope is expected to be moved to the slot in 2021.

Payton has yet to make an impact with the Miami Hurricanes. In two seasons, Payton has six receptions for 59 yards. Pope has been more productive with 52 receptions for 680 receiving yards and four career TDs but has struggled with drops. Rambo and Mike Harley provide Miami with a pair of reliable WRs for the 2021 season.

"1. Charleston Rambo, Miami  Rambo showed signs of his ability at Oklahoma with 68 catches for more than 1,000 yards in the past two seasons. But look for him to take a huge leap at Miami and be WR1 for the Canes."

Rambo was ranked first in the Rivals transfer rankings ahead of Arik Gilbert a former five-star signee with LSU who returned to his home state transferring to Georgia during the offseason. Gilbert had 35 receptions for 368 yards and two TDs as a true freshman tight end for the Tigers during the 2020 season.

D’Eriq King returning at quarterback in the second season of the Rhett Lashlee offense, Rambo should thrive as a downfield threat for Miami. The Hurricanes can become more dynamic offensively with the ability Rambo has to open the field up. With 10 returning starters the Miami offense should continue to develop in 2021.
