Dismissed LSU Lineman Jarvis Jones Transfers to Oklahoma

Jeff JohnsonCorrespondent IDecember 18, 2016

Former LSU offensive lineman Jarvis Jones has transferred to Oklahoma.

The 6'7", 294-pound offensive lineman played as a backup at left tackle and right guard on last year’s national champion LSU Tigers but was dismissed after breaking team rules.  Under NCAA transfer rules he must sit out this season and will be eligible to play in 2009.

"Jarvis is a talented guy who we recruited when he was in high school," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said.  "We're excited that he has joined the team.“

As all of Oklahoma’s starting offensive line are in their senior year, this move could give Oklahoma some depth at the position next year.
