Thursday Recruiting Tidbits

Three-star TE Bry'Keithon Mouton will announce his commitment Monday, and LSU's one of four finalists; Brandon Jones (pictured above), the No. 1 safety in 2016, is visiting Baton Rouge.

Three-star TE Bry'Keithon Mouton (Acadiana) will announce his commitment Monday during a ceremony at his school. The details are still to be determined.

Mouton will choose one of his four finalists — LSU, Miami, Ole Miss and Alabama. At about 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, Mouton ranks as the No. 22 tight end in the country. He is a take for the Tigers.

LSU offered Mouton on May 30, recruiting him as a tight end and also as an H-back. The Tigers plan to use him in several different roles on the offense should he wind up in the their class.

Mouton has regularly mentioned these four schools atop his list in recent months. He visited Tuscaloosa last month for Alabama's camp. He's also stayed high on Miami because of their reputation for producing NFL tight ends.

LSU will host the nation's best safety in the 2016 class on Thursday and Friday. Four-star Brandon Jones (Nacogdoches, Texas) was set to arrive in Baton Rouge early Thursday evening and plans to leave the following afternoon.

The Tigers first offered Jones (pictured above) in March and have been making him a high priority ever since. This will be his first trip to Baton Rouge, so the LSU will be sure to leave a lasting impression on him to stay in the mix moving forward.

Jones has offers from just about every major program in the country, so every school will have stiff competition to land his commitment. Texas A&M is often considered the early favorite, though he maintains that he's still wide open.
