3-Star Recruit Troy James Announces Commitment To Oklahoma

Just a day after decommiting from Arkansas, Troy James has committed to Oklahoma to continue his football career.

After decommiting from Arkansas on Friday, Troy Jones took to Twitter once again to make yet another important announcement: He'll be playing football for the Oklahoma Sooners next season. In the message, he thanks his family, friends, coaches and teachers for their help.

You can check out the full announcement below:

According to 247Sports, the Louisiana native visited Oklahoma Friday, and that was apparently enough to get the 6-foot-4, 270-pound defensive end to change his mind in favor of the Sooners.

James also had offers from Kansa, Colorado State and Cincinnati.

With his commitment, Oklahoma has the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in the Big 12 for 2017, and the No. 12 ranked class in the nation, per 247Sports. He's the only strong side defensive end in the class.
