St. Aug DE Jones picks LSU

Alfred Jones has been sitting on scholarship offers from some of the nation's top programs but when Nick Saban gave him an invitation to join the LSU program it was too much for the 6-3, 240 pound defensive end from New Orleans-St. Augustine to pass up.

"LSU has every school beat," Jones told Tiger Rag. "They don't have any more competition. LSU has everything an athlete could possibly ask for and plus it is only an hour and a half away from home.

As excited as Jones was to make his decision there was someone else who may have been a little happier.

"I called coach Saban and he said he thought I made an excellent decision," said Jones. "He said I made his day."

Jones also has offers from Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, UCLA, Indiana, Ole Miss, West Virginia and Duke. Now that he has made his decision is there any chance he may waver on his pledge to LSU?

"I doubt it," he said.
