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.

Wasn't getting enough playing time. Probably not that good.

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.

You probably thought the same thing about Burrow
