Not only is Jones headed to ASU, but he reportedly landed a very nice NIL package to play for the Sun Devils. He’ll earn $75,000 and get a car to use, according to Chris Karpman.

Welcome to the NIL era of college football!

Obviously, Jones was on his way out in Gainesville with the ascension of Anthony Richardson at quarterback, and he’s now in Tempe under Herm Edwards.

All things considered, this a huge recruiting win for the Sun Devils.

Jones, while far from a superstar, is a solid and steady quarterback, and had some success in the SEC. Now, he’ll be playing against much weaker competition in the PAC-12.

He shouldn’t have any problem at all when it comes to putting up numbers.


It’s a very good day to be a fan of the Sun Devils!
