Can the Sooners Steal WR Velus Jones From USC?

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

While it will be near impossible to replace the production of Sterling Shepard next season, the Sooners are on the verge of adding some real firepower to the wide receiver position in 4* Velus Jones 6-0/180 from Saraland, AL. Jones is currently committed to USC, but with the coaching uncertainty has decided to look around. In addition to the USC offer Jones has offers Cal, Florida, Louisville, UCLA, Michigan, Tennessee, Miss. St., and the Sooners.

Jones is a play making machine who possesses a level of speed that makes him a match-up nightmare.

Should he find himself a part of the Sooners class of 2016, he could see the field early. The Sooners will have stiff competition for his commitment with Michigan, but a huge performance this weekend could swing this battle in the Sooners direction. In fact, I would place him a possible sleeper commitment prediction for this weekend.
