Emory Jones Officially Flips From Ohio State To Florida

Emory Jones flips to Florida from Ohio State.

Four-star quarterback Emory Jones has made his decision.

Emory Jones has officially flipped from Ohio State to Florida. Jones, one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, made the news official during a ceremony at his high school on Wednesday.

Jones had originally committed to Ohio State last July, but in recent weeks, it started to become obvious that he wouldn't wind up being a Buckeye. Jones was reportedly down to either Florida State or Florida heading into Wednesday, and he wound up choosing the Gators.

Jones is a four-star player who stands at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. He's from Franklin Georgia, and he had offers from 22 schools - Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado State, Georgia, Georgia Southern, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, NC State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. Florida seemed to be tipped off to Jones' decision a few minutes before it was unveiled to the world.

Jones' commitment is the first big chip prospect pulled in by new head coach Dan Mullen. Florida's class, at the moment, ranks 30th in the country. That could change in the coming hours.
