Myreon Jones, Penn State’s leading scorer this past season, has decided on where he plans to transfer. The sharpshooting guard is heading to Florida, which he confirmed on Twitter after a report by 247Sports.

Jones was down to four finalists — Arkansas, LSU, Ole Miss and Florida — and apparently likes the situation with the Gators the best.

Jones averaged a team-high 15.3 points while shooting 39.4 percent from the floor and 39.5 percent from 3. He also averaged 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals and shot 77.3 percent from the FT line.

Of the six Penn State players who entered the transfer portal, three have now found new homes. A breakdown:

** Izaiah Brockington: decided to stay at Penn State

** Jamari Wheeler: transferring to Ohio State

** Myreon Jones: transferring to Florida
