Jones approached head coach Mike Sherman and asked to be released from his scholarship in order for him to be eligible to transfer.
““Mister came to me and expressed a desire to withdraw from school due to personal reasons,” Sherman said in a statement. “I granted his request. He is a quality young man and we wish Mister and his family all the best.”
Now everybody’s next thoughts are where is he going to transfer?
Jones was a 4-star recruit coming out of high school in Colorado and originally gave the CU an oral commitment before switching to play for A&M instead. With that said, Colorado can be a possible destination for Jones as he was high on the Buffs coming out of high school. One of his official visits was to CU and he obviously liked it enough to give an oral commitment so it’s plausible to think that he might be transferring to Boulder.
Jones was rated as the number 5 player in the state of Colorado for the 2010 class according to rivals.com and he would be a welcome addition to Jon Embree’s squad for next season. Embree and offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy want to run the football and Jones would be able to come in and compete right away to try and fill the void that Rodney Stewart will leave once he graduates this year.
If the Buffs do land Jones he will be the second 4 star recruit to transfer from a Texas school to play for CU. Earlier this month former Texas quarterback Connor Wood transferred to Boulder because he also fell down the depth chart and was looking for a fresh start.
Mister Jones has not expressed where he would like to transfer but Colorado seems like a good place to start.
