Quarterback Jalon Jones’ stay at Florida is going to be a short one. The true freshman and early enrollee has entered the NCAA transfer database and will pursue his college career at another school.
Jones, a four-star prospect from Richmond, Va., finished the spring a distant fourth on the depth chart, behind junior starter Feleipe Franks, junior Kyle Trask and redshirt freshman Emory Jones.
Like most true freshman QBs would, Jones had his share of struggles in the spring, especially throwing the football.
He completed just one of three passes for five yards in the spring game, but rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown.
With his departure, the Gators will open preseason camp this summer with only three scholarship quarterbacks — Franks, Trask and Jones. UF has a commitment for the recruiting class of 2020 — four-star Eastside quarterback Anthony Richardson. The Gators likely will now try to add another quarterback to the class.
