Jones is the school's all-time leading passer, and he finished the season with 4,463 yards and 29 touchdowns to go along with 15 interceptions. His production took a hit when senior wide receiver Ryan Broyles was injured, missing the final three games.

In a statement Jones said that "there is still a lot more to do" on the college level

“I want to accomplish the goals that I set before I got here, and there is still a lot more to do. I want to make sure I’ve exhausted every effort in that area.  And I want to be a senior.  I enjoy being at OU and with my teammates and look forward to graduating with the guys that were in my class when I got here. "We hope to have another opportunity to make a title run," Jones said.  "Most of the offensive line returns and we have several receivers and backs return too.  We've also got a lot of guys back on defense, so we're confident that we can be a strong team."
