    The LSU Tigers lost Kenan Jones’ commitment on Friday, less than a month after he pledged to Ed Orgeron.


    One of the nation’s top recruits for the 2018 cycle is back on the market. Four-star wide receiver Kenan Jones, out of Berwick, Louisiana, has decided to back off his commitment to the LSU Tigers and further evaluate all of his options.

    Jones posted the following message on social media on Friday.

    “First and foremost I would like to thank the entire LSU coaching staff for giving me the option of playing there in the near future. But I will like to announce that I have decided to decommit from LSU for the time being.”

    Jones is listed at 6’3″ and 205 pounds, and is ranked the No. 112 overall player and No. 20 recruit at his position. He’s the No. 2 wide receiver in the state of Louisiana.

    He originally committed to LSU on Jan. 28.

    With his decision to open things up, LSU now sits at nine commitments for 2018. He was the lone designated offensive player to date. Four-star Cibolo, Texas prospect Caden Sterns is listed as an athlete and could play either way.

    Despite his lofty rankings, the recruitment of Jones has been relatively quiet save for recently. He picked up offers from the Ole Miss Rebels on Feb. 15,  Auburn Tigers on Feb. 12, Kansas on Feb. 5 during a visit, and Louisville on Feb. 2.
