The Tigers added their 17th commitment of 2013 and their eighth pickup in the last two months on Friday with a verbal pledge from linebacker Melvin Jones (Lake Charles, La./Washington-Marion Magnet).

Jones, who is listed at 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, has been a coveted target for many Tigers fans and is the first linebacker taken in this class after LSU stocked the position in 2012. LSU beat Alabama and TCU for Jones' services.

Melvin's father, Troy Jones, who played running back for both Texas A&M and McNeese State, said the decision was ultimately up to his son.
