It was thought that Florida football would experience some attrition at the quarterback position. However, it’s highly likely that no one saw Jalon Jones leaving the school just one semester after early enrolling in January.

Jones, a true freshman from Richmond, Virginia, has entered the NCAA’s transfer portal just five months after signing with Florida. Matt Zenitz of AL.com was the first to report the news.

Jones was ranked the no. 10 dual threat quarterback in the 2019 cycle and chose the Gators over Alabama, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Oregon, and many others.

According to 247Sports, the parting was agreed to by both parties.

Jones, who appeared destined for a redshirt, ran for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Orange and Blue game on April 13. The former four-star prospect was clearly behind the other three quarterbacks on the Florida depth chart.
