Jones had committed to Lincoln Riley’s club back on Sept. 16, a few weeks after his official visit. The Missouri native currently stars at Butler Community College in Kansas.
He made the big announcement via Twitter:

Jacoby Jones’ Oklahoma decommitment is good news for Texas football on a few fronts.
First, Tom Herman’s staff is after Jones as a recruit. He is set to visit Austin this weekend.
He previously visited NC State over the summer, and also holds offers from Colorado, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas Tech, UCF, Washington State, and others.
Given the timing though, it definitely seems like Texas is the main factor right now.
The decommitment also bumps Texas right past Oklahoma in the 247Sports composite recruiting rankings. After his decision, Texas is No. 7 in the country, and No. 1 in the Big 12, exactly one spot ahead of the Sooners on both lists.
Due to a recent decommit for the 2019 class for the Oklahoma Sooners, the Texas Longhorns are now the No. 1 ranked team in the Big 12 for the 2019 recruiting cycle! #HookEm

Jones is the No. 25 JuCo recruit in the country, and tops at his position. The crystal ball now has 50-percent of voters choosing him to end up at Texas, and that should continue to get even more lopsided.
