LSU landed a huge transfer commitment on Wednesday from former Clemson linebacker Mike Jones.

The former four-star prospect from IMG Academy played in 10 games for Clemson in 2020 and recorded 30 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, and a forced fumble.

Jones will count toward's LSU's 2021 recruiting class, leaving the Tigers will one remaining spot. The Lebanon, TN native will be eligible to play immediately this upcoming season.

Head coach Ed Orgeron previously said he was searching for a linebacker transfer this offseason and even said he spoke to a few that were in the portal. The Tigers are losing linebacker Jabril Cox to the NFL Draft but return starters Damone Clark and Micah Baskerville.

Graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining. Started ten games for Clemson but his playing time was being pushed by Clemson LB Trenton Simpson by the end of the season. Linebacker is an area LSU greatly needed depth last season and this year, too. Jones will certainly have a chance to win a starting spot at LSU.

Saban retiring. Dabo to Bama. LB @Tide stacked. Not all leftovers are worthy. Not the case here.

Play the song or every time the announcer says his name for a tackle, the fans need to yell, ”WHO”. Hell, yell it every time they announce his name for anything.

He got banged up and missed a few games, but otherwise, he started. He had an interception in the playoffs too.

He was a back up at a juggernaut. Not every player has to be star, the vast majority are not. He just needs to be valuable contributor.
