Jones entered the transfer portal earlier this week. He tweeted that he had conversations with multiple schools, including Oregon. Joe Moorhead, the former Mississippi State head coach who recruited Jones, is now the offensive coordinator at Oregon. 

Ultimately, though, Jones chose to stay in the Magnolia State and play for another familiar face. Cornerbacks coach Terrell Buckley moved from Mississippi State to Ole Miss when Moorhead was fired in January. 

Buckley heavily recruited Jones out of Northwest Rankin high school. It seemed the future of Mississippi State's secondary was set with Jones and a collection of other young defensive backs learning from Buckley.

Once the future of Mississippi State's defensive back corps, Jones is joining a unit in need of a makeover under Buckley. Ole Miss ranked dead last in the SEC in passing defensive last year. The Rebels gave up 278.3 yards per game through the air. Mississippi State wasn't much better, checking in at No. 13 in the conference at 246.8 passing yards allowed per game.

At the end of the day, numbers weren't what drove Jones' decision. He had been cryptic on Twitter over the last few weeks with an all-black profile photo and a bio that read "#FreeDeuce." Jones also announced on Twitter he will be wearing No. 2 in Oxford. 

Jones didn't record any defensive statistics in last year's Egg Bowl, a 21-20 victory for Mississippi State. He played in 11 games as a true freshman with one start. He recorded 12 tackles, two pass breakups and a fumble recovery. 

Jones is the fifth player to transfer from Mississippi State this offseason. Defensive lineman Fabien Lovett started the trend in early April. His relocation destination is still to be determined. He announced via Twitter his intention to transfer to Florida State, but reports indicate he could follow Jones to Ole Miss.
