The team announced the news today. Jones, a native of Orlando, Fla., transferred to the Crimson Tide from Temple in the summer of 2018. He left the Temple Owls as the program’s No. 4 scorer (252 points) in its history. Jones set a school record in 2016 with 19 consecutive made field goals as a junior. He also set a school mark for most field goals made in 2015, connecting on 23 of 28 attempts. The 5-foot-10, 215-pounder made one kick on two attempts and made eight of 11 PATs in 2018 for the Tide.
He was on a Southeastern Conference Championship team and made the College Football Playoff. The Generals are 3-1 on the season and will face the New Orleans Breakers on Saturday at Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Ala.
