OU men's basketball lands Long Beach State's Jadon Jones via transfer portal

OU men's basketball secured a commitment from Long Beach State guard Jadon Jones on Sunday.

The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 12.1 points and 3.3 rebounds as a junior this past season. He's a two-way threat who became one of only nine players since 1992 to record at least 60 steals, 30 blocks and 75 made 3-pointers in a single season.

Jones is OU's second transfer portal addition this offseason. The Sooners landed Dayton guard Kobe Elvis on Tuesday.

It's a good start for OU, which went 20-12 (8-10 Big 12) last season and is tasked with rebuilding its roster.

Javian McCollum (Georgia Tech), Milos Uzan (Houston), Otega Oweh (Kentucky) and John Hugley IV (Xavier) entered the transfer portal. Jalon Moore also declared for the NBA Draft while Le'Tre Darthard, Rivaldo Soares and Maks Klanjscek are out of eligibility.

Jones and Elvis should form a veteran backcourt that's capable of doing damage both at the rim and from behind the arc. But OU head coach Porter Moser's work isn't done.

The Sooners also recently held visits for OSU center Brandon Garrison and Clemson forward RJ Godfrey.
