LaVar Arrington should know. He was a star linebacker at Penn State, the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and a three-time Pro Bowler. Arrington spent the week watching Houston defensive end Chris Jones at Under Armour practice. And he liked what he saw from the Mississippi State commit.
Arrington was also impressed with Florida commit Vernon Hargreaves III. Hargreaves was named MVP after he had five tackles and a pick at Tropicana Field. Jones had three tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss and two forced fumbles. He nearly had a pair of punt blocks too.
