Fritzmas Tracker: Keitha Jones Flips from SMU to Tulane

Versatile Texas player adds a projected LB to Wave's Big Board

By JP Gooderham

Last night on Twitter, Keitha Jones - a consensus 3-star according to 247 - announced that he would decommit from conference foe SMU and instead take his talents to Uptown.

Breakdown on Jones

Jones made a visit to Tulane this month, and he ultimately was swayed to join the Wave over the Mustangs.

We've been told that he projects as a linebacker, though other schools recruited Jones as a wide receiver or safety (and he played quarterback in high school).

Notably, he joins Tulane from his Memorial program in Port Athur, TX, where Texas Tech transfer Corey Dauphine also played his high school ball.

Jones became the 24th commitment (after 22 signees in December) for Tulane's 2018 recruiting class. That group currently ranks as the 4th best in the AAC and 71st in the country, according to 247.

Per tradition, this announcement has been Roll Wave'd by Coach Fritz.
