Switch made

Jesuit linebacker Deion Jones will apparently stay in state and attend LSU

LSU picked up commitment No. 21 on Thursday – Jesuit linebacker Deion Jones.

Sources told TigerSportsDigest.com that Jones met with Tigers' recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson Thursday evening for an in-home visit, and shortly after Jones switched his pledge from Nebraska to LSU.

Calls to Jones and Jesuit head coach Wayde Keiser were not returned.

Jones had been committed to the Cornhuskers since August, but an offer last month from LSU helped sway the 6-foot-2, 205-pound outside linebacker to remain home for college.

A New Orleans native, Jones helped Jesuit finish 10-0 in the regular season before being bounced by Carencro in the quarterfinals round of the 5A state playoffs.

He finished his senior campaign with 170 tackles, eight sacks, five forced fumbles, three fumbles recovered and three interceptions.

Jones is the fifth in-state linebacker to commit to LSU's 2012 class. West St. John's Ronnie Feist, Thibodaux's Trey Granier, Breaux Bridge's Lamar Louis and Woodlawn-Shreveport's Torshiro Davis are already on board.
