Sheriron Jones back at Tennessee after brief transfer to Colorado

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Quarterback Sheriron Jones has returned to Tennessee after a brief transfer to Colorado.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Ryan Robinson said Wednesday that Jones has re-enrolled at the school.

Colorado announced Friday that it had released Jones from his scholarship so that he could return to Tennessee. Robinson said at the time that he couldn't confirm anything until Tennessee received official paperwork granting Jones' release from Colorado.

Jones had transferred to Colorado earlier this month. Colorado officials said last week the NCAA allows a student-athlete to return to the school he transferred from if he decides to do so within a 14-day window.

Jones redshirted in 2015 and has four seasons of eligibility remaining. He was rated as a consensus four-star recruit when he signed with Tennessee.

The news came the same day that former Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb announced that he is headed to Boulder to compete for the starting quarterback position at Colorado.
