Jones played seven games during the Tigers' national championship season last year but was dismissed after breaking team rules. The 6-foot-7, 294-pound Jones was at Sooners practice Thursday.
``Jarvis is a talented guy who we recruited when he was in high school,'' Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. ``We're excited that he has joined the team.''
Jones played as a backup at left tackle and right guard as a freshman last season. He must sit out a year under NCAA transfer rules and will be eligible to play in 2009.
Oklahoma had a scholarship open last week when receiver Josh Jarboe was kicked off the team.
