Freshman quarterback Sheriron Jones has decided to transfer to Colorado, according to a report by 247Sports.com
Although Jones was higher rated coming out of high school, he did not play this season as he was beat out for the second-string job by Quinten Dormady, who was the primary backup for starting junior Joshua Dobbs. Dormady always seemed to have the inside track over Jones considering he enrolled in January and Jones didn’t get to campus until summer school.
The Vols are set to bring in another highly rated quarterback in the 2016 class: Jarrett Guarantano from Bergen Catholic High School (Oradell, N.J.)
Jones later thanked Tennessee fans, essentially confirming the report.
Thank you #VolNation
