Former true freshman Florida quarterback Jalon Jones has transferred to Jackson State, according to a report Tuesday citing unnamed sources.

Jones, an early enrollee at UF, entered the NCAA transfer portal earlier this month. In April, two female UF students accused Jones of sexual battery, but the case was closed by the University Police Department because the victims did not want to press charges against him.

Jones was a distant fourth on the depth chart at the end of spring and likely would have redshirted this season if he’d remained at UF.
