Sooners Announce Affiliation with Jordan Brand



The University of Oklahoma announced on Thursday evening an affiliation with Jordan Brand.

OU’s football, and men’s and women’s basketball teams will be wearing Jordan Brand uniforms starting with the 2018-19 academic year.

Former Sooner All-American men’s basketball player Blake Griffin, now with the Los Angeles Clippers, was in Norman to help make the announcement.

Griffin is signed with Jordan Brand and has been for a while.

Griffin visited with each of the three teams and flashed a “We Are Jordan” t-shirt to each team to make the announcement.

OU’s football team will be just the third major college football team to sport Jordan uniforms.

Michigan and North Carolina are the other two programs.

For women’s basketball, OU is just the third as well with Jordan Brand, joining the Wolverines and Tar Heels.

Four other men’s basketball teams wear Jordan Brand:  North Carolina, Michigan, Marquette, and Georgetown.
