Michigan recruit Kellen Jones lands at Oklahoma


The last time we mentioned former Michigan linebacker recruit Kellen Jones on this site, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke was informing the masses that Jones was “no longer enrolled at the University of Michigan” during Big Ten Media Days. Neither Hoke, nor U-M, would explain the situation beyond that.

But whatever the reason for Jones’ absence, he’s found his way on to Oklahoma’s roster, according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Big 12 blogger David Ubben found some time in between all the A&M-to-SEC chaos today to note that Jones chose OU “largely because of the relationship he developed with Sooner defensive coordinator Brent Venables during the recruiting process.”

Jones joins a Sooners group that, despite the loss of fellow linebacker Travis Lewis, could very well be the favorites to win not only the Big 12, but compete for a BCS national championship.

    Strange explanation – then why commit to Michigan in the first place… suspect the academic standards were daunting at UM.

    From a very reliable source, it was nothing to do with academics. Apparently he had some sort of sexual assault charge and that is why he is no longer at Michigan. I don’t know if it happened in Ann Arbor or back home. But that is what I’m being told.

    Ouch – better to have been academics

    If true (sexual assault), this loser doesn’t deserve any school. IF TRUE; shame on you Stoops.
