Former Penn State Hoops Guard Myreon Jones To Transfer To Florida

Former Penn State men’s basketball guard Myreon Jones is officially a Florida Gator.

After entering the transfer portal in mid-March, Jones announced Wednesday afternoon that he’ll leave Happy Valley for Gainesville.

The Mobile, Alabama native is the third Nittany Lion to transfer since the finish of the 2020-21 season. Jamari Wheeler announced his decision to transfer to Big Ten foe Ohio State last week, while Trent Buttrick confirmed earlier Wednesday he’s headed to UMass.

Nittany Lion stars Seth Lundy and John Harrar are the two notable Penn Staters remaining in the portal, while Izaiah Brockington confirmed earlier this month he’ll remain in Happy Valley with Micah Shrewsberry.

Jones was an absolute stud for Penn State over the course of his three-year career in Happy Valley. He was a value-add off the bench during his 2018-19 freshman campaign, but developed into a star as a sophomore by averaging 13.3 points per game. Jones started in nearly all of Penn State/s games this past season, and led the group with 15.3 points per game and two assists.

With Jones and Wheeler officially gone, plenty of weight falls onto the shoulders of Sam Sessoms, Izaiah Brockington, and Myles Dread at the guard position. The Nittany Lions don’t have any point guards committed to their 2021 class, and have just one among the 2022 group.
