Four-star Tide RB commit’s jaw broken in locker-room scuffle

Tyren Jones

If Tyren Jones is to make a public announcement on his college of choice Wednesday, he may be forced to utilize some sort of prop.  Or sign language.

According to the Marietta Daily Journal, and citing a source close to the situation, the touted Georgia high school running back suffered a broken jaw during a locker-room fight Friday night.  Other than Jones not throwing a punch during the brouhaha, there were no details of what led to or who was involved in the altercation.

Jones is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday, the Daily Journal reported, to repair the damage to his jaw, which was reportedly broken in two places.

While Jones verbally committed to Alabama last February, the paper notes that he has “mild interest” in Georgia and is thus considered by some to be a soft verbal to the Tide.

A four-star recruit according to the three major recruiting services, Jones is ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 11 running back in the country.  He’s also rated as the No. 5 player in the state of Georgia.

    Receiving a sucker punch is never good.

    Oh that poor lil soft Bama boy. boo hoo hoo

    Must have been a GA recruit that laid him out.

    Who knows if it was a sucker punch. Maybe a fight just ended after one punch. ie. mouthy guy runs his mouth, bad ass shuts it for him.

    Katty- your natural mother instincts are showing. You’re either a dude, or alone in life.

    11thstreet- you may be right. I have seen people go to open a can of whoop ass on someone, but end up spilling it all over themselves.

    Katty – Not sure what you problem is but it’s obvious Bama has beat whatever team you support. I’ve yet to read any comments you’ve made that indicate you are an adult.

    As a one-sport gal, I’d like to know what he was doing in a locker room in February. Does he play basketball? Since he didn’t throw a punch, it would be interesting to know what transpired. But I don’t get too caught up in what these unsigned kids do. Once they’re on the team, then we have to worry about them.

    @normtide … kat is definitely a dude. He’s given himself away too many times. But he’s probably alone in a basement as well.

    Deb, Norm, and all, I envision a cross between Kermit the frog and Pee Wee Herman.

    not really sure how he could’ve been in a locker room fight at this point of the year.. must be a two sport athlete..

  9. kattykathy says: Feb 3, 2013 4:42 PM

    5 brothers, 4 sons. Been around the male ego my whole life. But I have never seen such “lil man” complex, until I see the post from the fake, and her simpleton followers.

    I guess Bama supporters really are weak.

    He is a Tide commit or will be in three days
    so I think that he might be in the Bama locker room for a week end recruiting visit. Or was it a high school locker room? or the Ga Locker room??
    I dont take sides in this fight but saying you don’t care about Tide verbal commits (and a broken jaw) comes off as pretty cold to me.

  11. kiopta1 says: Feb 3, 2013 5:01 PM

    This sounds about right for a Bama, UsC, or Miami locker room.

    sorry I hit the link Walton High school locker room

  13. kozbee says: Feb 3, 2013 5:49 PM

    Jones will heal up.Could of been due to backyard recruiting and just pizzed somebody off.Fights happen alot around signing day,sure it wont be the last one.

  14. Deb says: Feb 3, 2013 6:34 PM

    Nice try katty-dude … but you’ve made too many “male” posts. No matter how many brothers a woman has, she’s not going to tell another woman she’s on the rag just because she doesn’t like what she has to say. Like I said, why you’re playing Tootsie is your business. It only became my business when you came out of the blue and started harassing me on PFT and here. Get a life.

  15. timh1955 says: Feb 3, 2013 6:45 PM

    Deb – Well said!

    My comment was “I don’t get too caught up in what these unsigned kids do. Once they’re on the team, then we have to worry about them.”

    That doesn’t mean I don’t feel for a kid with a broken jaw. It just means I don’t follow the sport that far down. Some fans follow high-school recruiting and keep up with player rankings and verbal commitments. I don’t. The NFL commands more of my attention, so other than glancing at these posts about potential Bama signees on CFT, I don’t follow college recruiting that closely.

    I think they were in the Alabama locker room fighting over some deer stuff.

    Good god you’re uterus is probably dangling like a side of beef in a butcher shop. Sew that thing up already. What’s the over under on number of fathers claiming those 4 poor souls? I’m setting the line at 2.5. You remind me of that birthing scene in Month Python’s The Meaning of Life. Can you say catcher’s mitt?

    It is funny how these articles miss the obvious question… Was this gym class? Because his HS season has been over for a while.

    Already fits in well with the SEC/Alabama! I wonder what his gpa is. Probably couldn’t even get into a Big 10 or ACC school. Those schools don’t offer a “How to balance your checkbook 101″.

    So is that why Maurice Clarett was such an epic fail?

    If you are in fact female, please don’t reproduce anymore. It’s not that I’m against sex, just that whole prison overcrowding thing. It concerns me…

    Lets all chip in and buy the kid some popcorn.
