Oklahoma Sooners Linebacker Kellen Jones Transfers To Clemson

Kellen Jones has transferred for the second time. The freshman inside linebacker saw some limited time with the Oklahoma Sooners last season, but was not expected to be one of the top two inside linebackers on the depth chart heading into next season. Jones, who previously arrived at Oklahoma by way of Michigan, has decided to transfer to Clemson. He won't play next season, but will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Jones is following Brent Venables, his former position coach, to Clemson. The Tigers fired defensive coordinator Kevin Steele after they gave up 70 points to the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Orange Bowl and hired Venables, the linebackers coach and defensive coordinator at Oklahoma, as his replacement.

Kellen Jones Could Transfer To Clemson, Purdue

Former Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Kellen Jones, who left OU weeks ago in search of more playing time, could follow former defensive coordinator Brent Venables to the Clemson Tigers. Tiger Illustrated quotes Jones as saying he "immediately sent" his release from OU to Clemson as soon as it was available. Jones has also reportedly visited the Purdue Boilermakers.

At Norman, he played in 12 games, recording 10 tackles as a freshman, ranking him sixth among all linebackers. He had a pair of special teams tackles in three different games. Hailing from Houston, Jones was ranked the No. 29 inside linebacker in the country by Rivals before committing to Michigan.

At the time, OU coach Bob Stoops said in a statement, "Kellen leaves the program in good standing, and we wish him the best."
