Oklahoma commit ready to be a Sooner

Since committing to Oklahoma this past March, Jordan Kelley has seen the Sooners say goodbye to Bob Stoops following the retirement of the 18-year head coach last month.

Oklahoma went on to promote Lincoln Riley to the head position after he spent the previous two seasons as both offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

And although a transition at the top has taken place in Norman, Kelley continues to reassure his allegiance to the program.

“The fact that it’s close to home and I grew up loving that school and wanting to play football there,” he said. “It is a dream come true.”

During February, the Union (Tulsa, OK) defensive lineman initially received a scholarship offer from the Sooners at their Junior Day.

Kelley’s first offer came from hometown Tulsa just over a year ago which was followed by offers from Oklahoma State in late-January as well as TCU, Iowa State and Memphis throughout February.

Arkansas extended an offer of its own a few weeks prior to the incoming senior revealing a verbal to Oklahoma.

“It’s just crazy seeing all the new stuff and talking to the players, so I can build a couple relationships before I get there.”
