By this point in the summer, Melvin Jones said he was just tired of dealing with the recruiting cycle.

That's why it must have come as some relief when the Lake Charles, La., native put an end to the process on Friday morning and committed to LSU.

"He was just so confused with all the phone calls, and people calling him and everything," said Troy Jones, Melvin's father. "It was just a burden off his chest. He was just stressed, and I could see it."
