Cincinnati wide receiver Jordan Jones announced on Friday night that he is transferring to play his final year of college football at Missouri State.
Jones is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver from Smackover, Arkansas. He began his career as an Arkansas Razorback.
In three seasons in Fayetteville, Jones played in 22 games while starting in six. He caught 37 passes for 593 yards and four touchdowns — with a pair of 100-yard games.
Jones transferred to Cincy during the summer of 2020 and played 10 games during his first season at UC. He had 13 total catches for 157 yards while averaging 12.1 yards per catch.
This past season, on a team that qualified for the College Football Playoff, he caught a pass in three games with his season-high coming with two catches for 13 yards against Miami-Ohio.
Out of high school, Jones was rated as a four-star recruit by ESPN and was a consensus Top 100 wide receiver. He was named the 2015 All-Arkansas Preps first-team wide receiver.
