Mike Jones enters transfer portal

The two older DT's didn't surprise me, but this one is kind of a head-scratcher. It's not like Jones is lacking playing time. He was a regular starter last season and likely would have been next season. He could have lost his starting job to Trenton Simpson or Malcolm Greene, but it's hard to believe Jones would transfer because he might lose his starting spot to a younger player. There must be more to this than that. Jones had already graduated from Clemson, so he will be able to play immediately elsewhere. He still has 3 years of eligibility left since 2020 did not count.

Incidentally, Alabama has also had 4 players enter the transfer portal, and Georgia has had 8, so this sort of thing is normal for the elite programs at this time of year.

Mike Jones announced he will play for LSU next season. Ugh! Talk about adding insult to injury.
