One of the top recruits from the 2018 recruiting class announced his decision to enter the transfer portal.

Former four-star safety Cam'ron Jones took to Twitter on Friday morning to reveal his intentions to leave the Nebraska football program. After just one season under head coach Scott Frost, it looks like Jones' time in Lincoln has come to an end.

Jones released a statement on Twitter.

"I would first like to send a sincere thank you to the University of Nebraska, Coach Frost, Fish, Held and the whole coaching staff and teammates for believing in me and supporting me this past year...Although this was not an easy decision, after further discussion with m family I have decided to enter my name in the NCAA transfer portal," Jones said.

Jones initially committed to UCLA, but backed away from that choice in December 2017 when the team fired former head coach Jim Mora.

He raved about his visit to Lincoln before announcing his commitment to the Huskers. "After my visit, I just was blown away. There’s not much not to like out there. It’s a beautiful campus. The fan base is crazy, too," Jones said about Nebraska.

Now he's in the transfer portal.

Stay tuned for his decision.
