Mykel Jones surprised everyone by visiting Oklahoma the last weekend before National Signing Day as most assumed he would be headed to Ole Miss. That visit has resulted in  the Sooners landing one of the most talented wide receivers in the class of 2016. Jones will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact as the Sooners are definitely looking for a player that can be a reliable target for Baker Mayfield.

Also landing Jones is a big deal as its not everyday that you land a player at Oklahoma that has offers from Bama, Ole Miss, FSU, LSU, and USC. He is a top 100 recruit and fills a major need.
