We're less than two weeks from what'll be a hectic and interesting National Signing Day, which means it's time to double down on our Oklahoma Sooners recruiting coverage. Here's our Oklahoma Recruiting Rumors & News Roundup: 13 Days 'Til Signing Day!
Oklahoma Out On Jones?
The USC Trojans have been guarding wide receiver commit Velus Jones Jr. for awhile now from flip candidates Oklahoma, Tennessee, Florida and Mississippi State.
Jones reportedly said recently that he's down to either staying with USC or making a move to the Sooners, but a recent 247Sports report indicates that he has told USC coaches that he'll reaffirm his commitment in the next 24 hours or so.

The in-state Texas Longhorns appear to have a slight advantage to complete a flip, but Arkansas and Texas A&M lurk as real contenders. He has visits left to Tennessee (this weekend) and A&M (January 29th), and already has visits in to Austin and Norman. Arkansas just offered Daniels on Monday and he appears very receptive to their overtures -- leading to speculation that his decommitment had a lot to do with Bret Bielema and the Razorbacks' offer.
Oklahoma Back In Top 25 For Recruiting Rankings
Following Daniels' decommitment, Oklahoma dropped from #24 to #32 in 247Sports' overall national 2016 recruiting class rankings. However, they jumped back to #25 when four-star Lawrence (KS) defensive end Amani Bledsoe spurns the in-state Jayhawks and chose OU on Thursday.
