Myreon Jones posts goodbye to Penn State

Of the six Penn State players to enter the transfer portal, the one who stood to be the most attractive to potential suitors was always leading scorer Myreon Jones. That meant there was probably little chance Jones was going to be convinced to stay at PSU.

Saturday, Jones posted a message on Instagram that would appear to mean he is indeed going to transfer.

Jones’ nickname is “Midnight,” so he’s referring to himself in the above post.

Jones led the Lions in scoring at 15.3 points per game this season. He shot 39.4 percent from the field, 39.5 percent from 3 and 77.3 percent from the free-throw line.

New coach Micah Shrewsberry got some good news Friday when second-leading scorer Izaiah Brockington, who had entered the transfer portal, announced that he’s staying at Penn State.

There’s no such good news with Jones.

As we posted yesterday, Jones has been contact by a bunch of schools seeking his services. This is the list we came up with:

Jones is from Birmingham, so it’s no surprise that Alabama reportedly has shown heavy interest in him. We could find out in the coming days if Jones has chosen to join the Crimson Tide, or someone else, from the transfer portal.
