It's impossible to underscore how important this commitment is to the Sooners. 4-Star WR Velus Jones 6-0/180 just tweeted out his commitment to the Sooners a few moments ago.

The Sooners coaches also showed their excitement for the commitment with a string of exclamation point laced tweets.

Velus had long been a USC commitment, but that all changed as he started taking visits to Tennessee, Michigan, and the Sooners. Velus also had offers from Cal, Florida. Louisville, Miss St., Notre Dame, South Carolina, UCLA, Vandy, and VTech.
He has something that you just can't teach at the WR position...SPEED. If you don't believe me, check out his highlight video below
