Recruiting update

We've caught up with a couple of prospects over the weekend. So here is the latest from the recruiting road.

Safety Chad Jones of Southern Lab says he'll visit LSU on the 26th of this month. He is also set to visit FSU this weekend and has made a trip to USC. Auburn, Clemson, Florida and Miami are also recruiting him.

Jones is probably the second best prospect in the state behind Joe McKnight. But Jones (6-3, 232) also is a baseball player -- one good enough to attract the attention of major league scouts.

"It's one of the toughest decisions I have to make,'' Jones says of choosing between football and baseball.

Jones had 180 tackles, 12 interceptions and 6 interceptions returned for touchdowns.

McKnight is scheduled to visit Ole Miss this weekend, USC on the 19th, LSU on the 26th and Arkansas on Feb. 2. The real players in this one figure to be LSU and USC.

LSU commitment Josh Dworaczyk (6-6, 280, OL-DL) is set to visit LSU on the 19th. He had 99 tackles as a senior at Catholic of New Iberia. But he could be in for a position change at LSU.

"I'll likely play offense in college so I'm learning,'' Dworaczyk says.
