He batted .500 (7-for-14) in a four-game week vs. Tulane (April 11) and Kentucky (April 13-15) with three doubles, two homers, five RBI and six runs. In LSU’s SEC series win over Kentucky, Jones hit .400 (4-for-10) with two homers, five RBI and five runs.

Jones batted .600 (6-for-10) the week of March 28-April 1 with one double, one homer, one RBI and five runs scored. He was 3-for-5 with a double and two runs on April 1 vs. Tennessee

He hit .462 (6-for-13) in the Texas A&M series (March 17-19) with one homer, eight RBI and one run. Jones led the Tigers to the series-clinching victory on March 18 by going 4-for-5 at the plate with a three-run homer and a pair of two-run singles for a total of seven RBI.

Jones was named SEC Co-Freshman of the Week on March 13 after he batted .600 (6-for-10) from March 6-12 with four homers, 11 RBI and five runs. He homered four times in four consecutive plate appearances over the course of the Tigers’ games versus Samford.

As good as he is, we need the defense morgan provides at first. I wouldnt be mad at platooing him against lefties as DH in the cws though

Congratulations to you young man! Beginning of the season I thought Kling would do better against SEC pitching, the opposite happened, & JJ was the dude, just seemed the season was a little too long for him. Looking fwd to next year!

Saw his picture on the homepage and before reading the title was worried that he was announcing he was transferring. Not saying that was a rational thought.

He’s just going to keep getting better, more patient, and learn to be more selective, with each at-bat! Will, def, be a force here at LSU before he leaves!

Makes you appreciate the talent level LSU has when you read these stats and he can't get a swing lately or see the field. Good attitude cause he's not complaining. He will be a force in the future.
