Former Florida four-star quarterback Jalon Jones has a new home. Weeks after transferring from the Gators, Jones has reportedly landed at Jackson State.
Jones enrolled early in Gainesville in January but elected to transfer in late April. It was after Jones decided to leave the program that a report emerged stating he had been accused of sexual assault by two different women.
Additionally, another four-star freshman Chris Steele reportedly left UF over a dorm room issue involving Jones. According to reports, Steele had asked the Florida staff to let him switch roommates because he was “uncomfortable” with living with Jones.
When the coaching staff balked and told Steele to wait until the summer, he decided to transfer.

Given all of these circumstances, it figures that Jones will be monitored closely at Jackson State. He certainly has the talent to succeed there, but the off-field concerns are worth keeping an eye on.
Jones was rated the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
He was originally committed to Mississippi State but chose to follow head coach Dan Mullen to Florida.
