Kenan Jones has found his way back into LSU’s recruiting class.
Jones, a 4-star wide receiver from Berwick (La.) High School, re-committed to LSU on Saturday evening less than three months after reopening his recruitment in late February.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound wideout is a top-300 prospect in the 2018 cycle. Jones ranks as the No. 49 receiver in the class and No. 11 overall prospect in Louisiana, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
Jones landed an offer from the Tigers during the school’s elite prospect camp last July and pulled the trigger on a verbal commitment later this past January. However, as the elite wide receiver began garnering attention from other colleges, he opted to de-commit.
Nonetheless, Jones named LSU as one his leading schools in the days following his decision to de-commit.
Former LSU wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig was Jones’ primary recruiter before being let go from the Tigers’ coaching staff in February. Since then, Mickey Joseph has spearheaded Jones’ recruitment, which quickly resulted in a boom.
Jones attended the LSU spring game in April and has consistently made visits to Baton Rouge since securing his offer last summer. While Kansas made a push for the Louisiana native, he found his way back into LSU’s 2018 recruiting class in only a matter of months.
The addition to Jones to LSU’s class pushes the total number of commitments to 16. Jones is the second wide receiver in the group, joining 3-star Jena (La.) High School wide receiver Jaray Jenkins. The Tigers are aiming to reel in at least four and upward of six wide receivers in this recruiting cycle.
