It appears as if Penn State has lost highly-regarded defensive tackle Jarron Jones for good.
The 6-foot-7, 300 pound-plus lineman has reportedly verbally committed to Notre Dame — months after he had verballed and then backed off of a commitment to the Nittany Lions, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The Rochester, N.Y. prospect is considered an elite five-star recruit by national services. It seemed like Penn State was on a huge recruiting role back in the spring when Jones and New Jersey’s Jamil Pollard, another stud defensive lineman, verballed close together.
But Pollard has his scholarship offer pulled because of academic problems and Jones backed off his pledge and quickly zeroed in on the Fighting Irish.
