Report: FSU WR Isaiah Jones declared academically ineligible

Sunday August 17th, 2014

Florida State wide receiver Isaiah Jones was declared academically ineligible on Saturday, head coach Jimbo Fisher said in an Associated Press report.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore can't play in games but can still practice with the team and will still attend the school as a student. He caught two passes for 31 yards in five games in 2013. In a spring game in April for the Seminoles' Gold squad, he had five receptions for 81 yards. 

Jones, the tallest receiver on the roster, was expected to compete for a starting role after FSU lost senior Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin entered the NFL draft early.
