Noles WR Isaiah Jones academically ineligible for 2014 season
Florida State will be without the services of sophomore wideout Isaiah Jones this season after Jimbo Fisher said he would be academically ineligible.
Florida State sophomore wide receiver Isaiah Jones will not play during the 2014 season after being declared academically ineligible, Jimbo Fisher said Saturday, per the Associated Press.
Fisher said Jones would remain enrolled at Florida State and will practice with the Seminoles throughout the season.
A four-star recruit in the class of 2013 out of Milton, Fla., the 6-foot-4 Jones appeared in five games as a true freshman, catching two passes for 31 yards.
But with Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin departed, starting receiver positions at FSU have been up for grabs behind No. 1 target Rashad Greene, and Jones' five receptions for 81 yards in the spring game appeared to have given him a shot at a major role in the 2014 Seminole offense.
That role will could instead go one of the Seminoles' many talented underclassmen, including five-star freshman Travis Rudolph, who has been bothered by nagging injuries in fall camp but impressed Saturday:
