Jones, who signed with Tennessee in 2001, where he eventually earned playing time as a true freshman. He was dismissed from the Volunteers program in April of this year after failing a substance abuse test. He had also been previously suspended by Tennessee on two prior occassions.
Jones will join the program as a non-scholarship player this fall and must sit out the 2003 season due to NCAA rules. Because he didn't have a reshirt season while at Tennessee, Jones will have two years of eligibility remaining following the upcoming season.
During his two years as a Volunteer, Jones (6'2, 200) had 28 receptions for 356-yards for an average of 12.7-yards per catch.
Jones was named Kentucky's Mr. Football and was selected as a Parade All-American after helping guide Male High School to the 4A State Championship crown in 2000.
During his four years at Male, Jones set in state records with career receptions (266), touchdown receptions (59) and receptions in a single game (16).
