I’ll be going to school at Robert Morris University and will be playing football there.— Paul Jones(@C1nd3rellaMan) November 12, 2012
Former five-star quarterback recruit Paul Jones, who left the Penn State football team earlier this season after being disappointed with his new role at tight end, announced on Twitter that he would be transferring to Robert Morris University to continue his college and football-playing career starting next semester.
During his time at Penn State, Jones did not play a single regular-season game at quarterback and caught one pass for seven yards and lost seven yards on a rush in his only games at tight end. He was held off the field for two years due to problems in the classroom until he finally became eligible this year, but was passed by on the quarterback depth chart by starter Matt McGloin and true freshman Steven Bench.
He will now take his talents to the FCS-level, hoping to move back to his natural position at a school in his native Pittsburgh area. The Colonials are 4-6 in the Northeast Conference this year and have quarterback struggles that the former heralded recruit may be able to remedy with spring and summer practices this upcoming year.
From all of us at BSD, good luck to you, Paul.
