Florida quarterback Jalon Jones accused of sexual battery

Florida Gators freshman quarterback Jalon Jones was accused of sexual battery on two different University of Florida students, according to UF police department reports obtained by Gator Country.

The two victims alleged that they were sexually assaulted on the morning of April 6 at Keys dormitory complex. Both went to Shands Hospital following the incidents and received rape kits but declined to press charges at the time.

Both reports state that two female UF students went to visit Jalon Jones and his roommates, Chris Steel and Jaydon Hill at approximately 2 a.m. The three football players and two women were in the living room according to both reports. In the first report Jones and one of the alleged victims left the living room and went to his room where they began to engage in consensual sex. She says Jones was on top of her when the door opened and Hill and Steele walked in. Noticing the two other men in the room she told Jones to stop, which he refused to according to the report. When Hill and Steele realized Jones and the woman were having sex they left the room. She alleges that even after the two players left she repeatedly told Jones to stop, which he didn’t. she was eventually able to push Jones off of her, get dressed and leave his room.

A short time later the other female student that was in the dormitory alleges Jones sexually assaulted her. She told officers that she “was upset about an incident that happened earlier that night with a friend she had a disagreement with” and that Jones started to console her about it in the kitchen of the dorm.

She told UFPD that Jones “started to kiss her on the neck and removed her jean shorts and underwear and digitally penetrated her vagina” before turning her around to have sex with her. The victim says she repeatedly told Jones to stop, which he didn’t until he “saw and heard Hill in the living room.”

Both students ordered an Uber from the dorm to their home. The two then went to Shands South Hospital where they were administered rape kits. The two declined to pursue charges at the time of the incident.

When asked for a comment Senior Associate Athletic Director Steve McClain said. “We are aware of the incident reports and have followed athletic department and campus protocols.”

Earlier this week Jones entered his name in the transfer portal, showing his intentions to leave the University of Florida. Jones was a four-star quarterback from Richmond, Virginia.

He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry.
