Is Jarvis Jones committed to the Tigers?

It has been reported by several news outlets in Louisiana that 4-star offensive lineman Jarvis Jones committed to the LSU Tigers.

We had heard that there were a couple of different sides to the story and today we got the side from his mother.

"Right now, Jarvis is not committed," said his mother, Angela Mayberry. "LSU is a strong contender but we haven't committed."

Late last week, the big 6-6, 260-pound tackle called LSU running backs coach Larry Porter and told him that he wanted to be a Tiger but shortly after that Mayberry spoke to Porter.

"I spoke with him and told him we were not committing," said Mayberry. "One of the reasons is because we haven't taken our official visit there or to Oklahoma or A&M. My opinion is that this is a major step and it is important that Jarvis is put in the best position to succeed in life. So, I want to be sure before we commit anywhere."

Mayberry said that the whole recruiting process is complicated and there is no reason for Jarvis to make a quick decision.

"This whole thing is kind of like the promise land that I haven't seen yet," said Mayberry. "Coaches come in and tell you things but I need to see for myself. We want to let everyone come in and have their sofa time then after the playoffs we will take our visits. If all of these offers are legitimate then they will wait until we can make a sound decision."

Jarvis has already visited Iowa and Arizona but according to his mother three other schools are in the thick of it.

"LSU, OU and Texas A&M," she said. "Those three are pretty much the top three."

It appears that LSU is high on Jarvis' list and now Porter and the rest of the staff need to win over mom.
