Jordan Brand and the University of Oklahoma announced an apparel deal Thursday that will make Jumpman the official uniform provider for the Sooners football team as well as their men's and women's basketball teams.
According to the school's official press release, the programs will begin to don the Jordan Brand jerseys during their respective 2018-19 seasons.

The Sooners will be the third school to don Jordan Brand uniforms on the gridiron.
The Michigan Wolverines became the first to do so in 2016, and the North Carolina Tar Heels—Jordan's alma mater—followed their lead in advance of the 2017 campaign.
On the court, the Sooners will join squads like the Wolverines, Tar Heels, Georgetown Hoyas, Marquette Golden Eagles and Oakland Golden Grizzlies as those rocking Jumpman-emblazoned threads.
It should also be noted former Oklahoma All-American and current Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin is a Jordan Brand ambassador.
