OU Prospect Committed Despite NCAA Ruling

Oklahoma Sooner Football Article and Notes

Oklahoma's Incoming QB Commitment Jones unfazed by NCAA: His [Landry Jones] commitment to play football at Oklahoma remained firm. His respect for the coaching staff and players didn't budge. He was prepared. "It didn't bother me at all," Jones, a four-star prospect from Artesia (N.M.), said of the penalties levied by the NCAA against OU. "The coaches had already told us what was going to go on through all of this." The prospect continued by saying, "There are three guys battling for a position this year. If I want to come in and hopefully start my freshman year, I have to be focused in the offseason." (NewsOK.com)

Muskogee wide receiver prospect, Jameel Owens told The Oklahoman quote:
"At first I was thinking pretty hard on it. OU is going to be one of the top schools on my lists, but if they would have lost any bowl games, I would have had to change my list. But what they got hit with, it didn't really affect me. Losing two scholarships just means they have to do a better job of recruiting.”
