Reserve QB Sheriron Jones is leaving Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Reserve quarterback Sheriron Jones is leaving Tennessee.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Ryan Robinson confirmed Thursday that Jones intends to transfer. Jones redshirted for Tennessee during his lone season on campus, leaving him with four seasons of eligibility.

Jones, who is from Perris, California, was rated as a consensus four-star recruit when he signed with Tennessee in February. Jones is listed as 6-foot-2 and 208 pounds, threw for over 2,000 yards his senior year at Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, California.

Tennessee expects to return starting quarterback Joshua Dobbs and second-teamer Quinten Dormady from the team that went 9-4 with an Outback Bowl victory this season. Dobbs will be a senior and Dormady will be a sophomore next season.
