This recruit wasted little time after the news of Dan Mullen’s departure from Mississippi State.
3-star quarterback Jalon Jones announced on Twitter on Monday that he has de-committed from the Bulldogs, reopening his recruitment process. Jones cited the coaching change as the reason for his decision.
Due to the recent coaching change at Mississippi State, I will be reopening my recruitment process.

Jones is a dual-threat quarterback from St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. The Class of 2019 QB had been committed to Mississippi State since July 22. He also has offers from Alabama and Clemson, among others.
This is likely just the first of numerous de-commits to come for Mississippi State. Mullen, who had coached the Bulldogs since 2009, was announced as the new Florida coach on Sunday.
