Stephenson (GA) offensive lineman Tyler Jones has informed Pack Pride that he has switched his commitment from Mississippi State to NC State.

"I called the coaches tonight," said Jones. "NC State was just a better fit and feel for me academically and socially. Football-wise I feel that you can make it no matter what school you are at, and I wanted to be at a school where I would be happy."

Jones was on campus for an unofficial visit this weekend when NC State hosted Central Michigan.

"It was everything I expected it to be and hoped it would be," said Jones. "I really liked it a lot. It was a great family atmosphere. Everybody was close. I met all the coaches and I met some of the coaches kids. The academic system is great and fits me. I'm a city boy so it's in the city and that actually helps them a lot."

Jones picked the Wolfpack over offers from Mississippi State, UConn, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Florida, Charlotte, and Wake Forest among others.

Jones is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 42 offensive guard in the nation by Scout.com. Pack Pride will have more on his commitment in the near future so stay tuned!
