Tyren Jones’ commitment to Alabama hasn’t affected LSU’s interest in the running back from Walton High School in Marietta, Ga.
The Tigers appear to still be in heavy pursuit of Jones despite his pledge to Alabama.
Alabama Commit Tyren Jones told me LSU has really turned the heat up on him. He is from New Orleans. Weighed 201 today and said “solid” 2 UA

Despite that “solid” pledge, Jones’ recruitment could still be worth monitoring. The Crimson Tide already has a commitment from running back Altee Tenpenny from North Little Rock, Ark. Another running back choosing Alabama could influence Jones to look elsewhere, including LSU.
Other schools to offer Jones include Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson and North Carolina.
