    For such a small school, looks like about 600 or so students, quite an extensive athletic department. Lots of teams.

    Man, I was so pumped when he committed. I hope he can find a good path in life.

    What is he, about 45 years old by now? Seems like forever ago.

    I'm just doing a wild extrapolation of his "Offered" message in the pic.

    So does he still have 4 years of eligibility left? Two years at Waldorf and then somewhere else for two years?

    I think he has to go NAIA because they use a different clock than the NCAA.

    I don't think he has any years of eligibility left with the NCAA unless he were granted a 6th year like OJ and Rodney as they were in the same class.

    NAIA rules are probably different.

    Seasons of Competition

    Students are charged seasons for competing at the collegiate level or for any elite outside competition that takes place a year after high school graduation in a year when you're not participating in college sports. NAIA students are allowed a maximum of 4 seasons of competition in a single sport. https://www.playnaia.org/page/transfers.php

    Wouldn't think he would have much left.

    If he did stick with this team, excel, get an NFL tryout, make a roster...

    It would be a movie script for the ages. Blessings to you Jeff.

    I am cheering for him to be successful on / off the field. He keeps trying so maybe he will get his life moving forward in a positive direction.

    per Joe:

    Three years after leaving the Gophers football team, former Minneapolis Washburn standout Jeff Jones is attempting a comeback, this time at Waldorf University in Forest City, Iowa.

    Jones, 23, signed his national letter of intent Wednesday, and Waldorf’s football team announced the news on Twitter. The team plays at the NAIA level.

    Jones was one of the highest-rated recruits in Gophers history when he signed with them after earning MVP honors at the Under Armour All-American Game in 2014.

    He was academically ineligible that fall and wound up playing in just three games for Minnesota, all in 2015, before transferring to Iowa Western Community College. In May 2016, Jones was charged with felony drug possession after being pulled over in Bloomington with a firearm in the vehicle.

    On Wednesday, Jones posted the Waldorf announcement on Twitter, adding, “Prayed for an opportunity and he delivered forever grateful.”

    Based on that, I think he still has three years of eligibility? The NAIA only counts semesters/seasons in school, no running clock. It was a little unclear with transfers (at least I didn't see enough detail to figure it out).
