Paul Jones, ex-Penn State QB, to play for Robert Morris

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

After leaving the Penn State football program in September, Paul Jones will reportedly play for FCS program Robert Morris University next season. Jones will return to his preferred position of quarterback after the Penn State coaching staff had made him a tight end.

Former Penn State Nittany Lions back-up quarterback Paul Jones, who left the program in September, will be playing football at FCS Robert Morris University next season, according to Guy Cipriano of the Centre Daily Times.

The move to Robert Morris will allow Jones to fulfill his desire to play quarterback, rather than the tight end position he had been moved to by the Penn State coaching staff.

Jones stayed at Penn State after the NCAA sanctions were leveled against the Nittany Lions, but chose to leave for personal reasons in September after he was demoted to third-string quarterback and moved to playing tight end.

The 6'3, 258-pound athlete will be able to play right away at Robert Morris next season and is expected to play quarterback.

Jones' career at Penn State ended without him ever taking a snap at quarterback despite being a highly-ranked recruit when he came to Happy Valley. In his newfound role as a tight end this season, Jones had one catch for seven yards.
