The Longhorns released Jones in late July, five months after he was accused of punching a Texas tennis player and breaking his jaw. Jones was charged with felony aggravated assault after the February incident involving an ex-girlfriend and her male friend. The charge was later reduced to a misdemeanor.

Upon Jones' release, his father told the Associated Press the high school Under Armour All-American needed a fresh start via a transfer.

Jones tweeted his short list of schools shortly after his release, including Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado, East Carolina, Florida, North Carolina and UCLA.
