Florida quarterback Jalon Jones signed with Florida and enrolled in January 2019 in the hopes of competing for the starting job after Feleipe Franks moves on. It turns out that his stay in Gainesville lasted all of 15 practices, as Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported Tuesday that Jones has entered the NCAA transfer portal following the conclusion of spring practice.
A four-star prospect out of Richmond, Virginia, Jones was the 10th-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2019 and one of six four-star recruits signed by coach Dan Mullen during the 2019 recruiting cycle.
Jones played sparingly in the Florida spring game earlier this month, racking up 63 rushing yards and one touchdown. Included in that were runs of 34 and 25 yards before he capped a drive off with a four-yard touchdown run. Following the early national signing day last December, Jones detailed what Florida meant to him.
