Was JaCoby Jones at LSU's orientation this week?

The Baton Rouge Advocate certainly indicated that.

Randy Rosetta:
Besides LeBlanc, several incoming freshmen have gone through the initial steps of orientation on LSU's campus this week. Mainieri said a handful of the incoming players were in Baton Rouge this week, including infielder Jacoby Jones and pitcher Ryan Eades, who were both drafted in the 19th round last week.

"Mainieri" is LSU head coach Paul Mainieri.

It's worth pointing out that, if the reports are true that the Astros offered Jones $1.5m-ish, that's the signing bonus for a 2010 mid-1st Round pick. That he has seemingly turned down.
