Jones chose the Gators over offers from programs likeĀ Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, Clemson and Georgia.

The 6-foot-2 dual-threat quarterback is the 7th ranked prospect in the state of Georgia and the No. 4 overall recruit at his position. Nationally, Jones ranks as the 40th best prospect, so it is a major get for Mullen and his program as they look to move forward.
