Jalon Jones enters NCAA transfer portal

University of Florida freshman quarterback Jalon Jones has entered the NCAA transfer portal after just four months on campus.

Matt Zenitz was first to report the news on Twitter and Gator Country has confirmed that Jones intends to leave Florida after just one spring.

Jones was a four-star quarterback prospect but struggled some in the spring. It was apparent that Jones was headed for a redshirt in his freshman season and sources told Gator Country that the decision for him to transfer was mutual between Jones and the coaching staff.

Jones played sparingly in Florida’s spring game completing one pass for five yards, while adding 63 yards rushing and a touchdown on three carries.

Florida has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster in Feleipe Franks, Kyle Trask and Emory Jones.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. 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. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
