Louisville lands another commitment from Georgia; Peachtree Ridge linebacker Kam Jones has committed to the Cardinals on Sunday night

Suwanee, Ga., Peachtree Ridge High School linebacker Kam Jones is commitment No. 10 in the Class of 2017 for the University of Louisville. Jones committed to the Cardinals on Sunday over Mississippi State, Northwestern, Missouri, South Florida and others.

Suwanee, Ga., Peachtree Ridge High School linebacker Kam Jones made an unofficial visit to the University of Louisville for the spring game in April and said he knew the Cardinals' would always be high on his list.

On Sunday night, Jones committed to Louisville.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Jones picked the Cardinals over Mississippi State, South Florida, Northwestern, Missouri, Akron and others. He announced his decision on his Twitter account.

Jones said in April that Louisville was in the mix because of several reasons, including defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. His former teammate Malik Staples has signed with U of L and enrolled in May, while teammate Connor Heyward also holds a U of L offer.

"It was real good," Jones said of the spring game. "I like Louisville and what they do on defense. I've bonded with the coaches and I like how they use their players on defense. I love the way (Grantham) coaches."

Jones averaged 4.5 tackles and one sack a game in 10 games last season for Peachtree Ridge.

Jones’ father, Tony, is a former NFL offensive tackle. He played 13 seasons in the league, including four with the Denver Broncos, where he won two Super Bowls.
