Jones, known as "P.J." to family and friends, made the news public during a live chat on FightOnState.com.
"This is Paul 'P.J.' Jones, and I would like to let everybody know that I just committed to Penn State," Jones wrote.
"It just felt right," he said. "Right before it happened, my mom said, 'P.J., just follow your heart.' I knew it was time."
