Michigan State picked up a commitment on Monday from Cincinnati linebacker Shane Jones. Jones is Michigan State's second linebacker commit for 2013 (Jon Reschke is the other) and the sixth overall commit for next year's recruiting class.
Jones is ranked 14th at his position on Rivals, which gives him four stars. Scout and 24/7 Sports only give him three stars. The former has Jones 33rd at his position and the latter has him 26th.
According to Rivals, Jones holds offers from the following schools: Michigan State, Arizona, Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Texas A&M, among others.
As pointed out by Chris Vannini, Jones has now joined the list of players from Moeller High School to commit to the Spartans.
