Indiana gets commitment from defensive end

Scout.com is reporting that Georgia defensive end Fred Jones has given a verbal commitment to Indiana.

Jones, a 6-5, 235-pounder, visited Bloomington recently. He becomes the 18th player to give a public verbal. Players planning to join the class of 2007 can begin signing their letters-of-intent on Feb. 7.
Jones told John Decker that he chose Indiana over Marshall because of the business school and because he thinks he may be able to play early.

We’ll have more on this story on Wednesday.
