Jones entered the NCAA transfer portal last week. He addressed his departure from Stanford in a social media post.

"I want to thank the entire Stanford football staff for supporting me during my time here at Stanford University, especially Coach Shaw for recruiting me and taking a chance on me and I want to thank Coach [Gould] for pushing me to be a better player every single day.

"Most of all, I will miss my brothers that I have battled it out there with for the last three years. I am grateful for you allowing me to be a small part in your lives. Lastly thank you to the loyal Cardinal fans.”
