Class of 2018 wide receiver Kenan Jones announced Friday he's decided to decommit from LSU, though the playmaker didn't rule out rejoining the Tigers when he makes a final decision.

Jones posted a message on Twitter about opening the recruiting process again:

His choice comes less than a month after committing to LSU. The wideout told Paul Letlow of TigerBait.com in late January he was eager to join the SEC program.

"If I could start there tomorrow, I would start there tomorrow," Jones said. "I'm ready to go."

He spoke with Ryan Green of Gridiron Now in early February and stated his experience on the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, campus sold him on the Tigers.

"Just the atmosphere there," Jones said. "I had it in mind that I would be going there. I went and took a tour of the school and fell in love with it."

It's unclear what happened over the past two weeks that caused his abrupt change of heart.

Jones is a 4-star prospect who rates as the No. 112 overall recruit in the 2018 class, according to the Scout.com player rankings. He's also listed as the No. 20 wide receiver and the second-best player at the position from the state of Louisiana.

Scout named Auburn, Kansas, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisville and Ole Miss as other potential "schools of interest" alongside LSU.

The Berwick High School standout possesses a college-ready frame at 6'3", 205 pounds. What he lacks in breakaway straight-line speed, he makes up for with his ability to make plays in traffic. He figures to develop into a major red-zone weapon for whichever school he eventually picks.

Jones explained to Letlow after originally signing with LSU he wanted to have his college situation figured out before starting his senior year of high school. It's unknown whether that timetable still applies as he explores the other options available.
