Ty Jones announces he will enter NCAA Transfer Portal

“Where do I begin?” Jones tweeted announcing his entrance into the Transfer Portal. “I can’t thank you all enough for taking a kid from Provo, Utah in as one of your own and embracing me. While being here, I’ve grown so much as a player and more importantly as a man. I have nothing but respect for the UW Football program, husky nation, and the city of Seattle. I’ve developed relationships here with teammates, mentors, and friends that I will cherish and nurture forever.

“The memories I’ve made here have been amazing and I thank the coaching staff, medical and training staff, Bart and the equipment staff and of course Socha and the strength and conditioning staff for making it possible. With that being said, I’ve decided to graduate and enter the transfer portal with my remaining eligibility. This definitely won’t be the last time I’m in Seattle but for now this is the right decision for me. Thanks again Husky Nation!”

Jones, a former U.S. Army All-American, has one year of eligibility remaining for whichever school he ends up transferring to.

When he was in high school, Jones had offers from all in-state programs, BYU, Utah, and Utah State. Jones was originally committed to the University of Utah in 2015. He de-committed from the Utes in 2016, and later signed with the Huskies.
