The same held true with the Chicago De La Salle offensive tackle who kept his commitment to Ohio State on Tuesday after taking a weekend official visit to East Lansing.
It wasn't an easy decision for the 6-foot-5, 285-pound lineman, who said he appreciated the opportunity Michigan State offered him.
"I really appreciate the coaching staff and fans," Jones said. "It was incredibly difficult to tell them I wouldn't be coming to Michigan State.
"They will continue to have a great program because of the great people that run it."
