I wonder how fans knew what players committed to their favorite teams before social media. Did they just show up to spring practice and see the new faces and figure it out then? Because these days, news travels faster than ever. This is a perfect example. Louisville will get a commitment on Wednesday for this year’s football class, but we already know about it tonight.
Shaq Jones is a 6’2 defensive back/wide receiver from Merritt Island, Florida. He recently decommited from South Alabama and will officially commit to the Louisville Cardinals tomorrow (Wednesday). He is only listed as a two-star player, but we know how much that means to Bobby Petrino, not much. He turns two-stars into four and five-star players. CSZ’s Steve Rummage seems to think that rating is low anyways.
Watched @ImShaqJones07 highlights and left VERY impressed. 6'2 athlete that can play either side of the ball. Could be Petrinos 1st steal

Jones’ header on his twitter bio shows a Louisville Cardinal and he has been retweeting everything tonight with fans talking about him committing to the Cards. He even responded to someone who asked if he was committed and said “2morrow”, so it is pretty much a done deal.
Check out these highlights of Jones. Petrino got himself a good one! Follow him on twitter @ImShaqJones07
