It’s unusual, but not unheard of for a player to look to transfer even before the start of his freshman season. That seems to be the case for Florida four-star cornerback Jalon Jones.
Jones, one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2019 class, enrolled at Florida in January. However, he’s already looking to leave, per AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.
Jones has put his name in the transfer portal, according to Zenitz. That doesn’t guarantee that he’ll be transferring, but it does enable him to be in contact with other programs.
If Jones leaves, Florida’s quarterback depth chart will be down to Feleipe Franks, Emory Jones and Kyle Trask.
Florida freshman QB Jalon Jones has entered the NCAA transfer portal, per source.
Was a four-star recruit and an early enrollee. Ran for 63 yards and a touchdown during Florida's spring game.

Jones was the 10th-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
He originally committed to Florida last April, choosing the Gators over Mississippi State, NC State, Tennessee and others.
