 Emory Jones, Arizona State, Player News


  The Arizona State Sun Devils football team added another quarterback to its roster on Thursday in Florida transfer Emory Jones. Jones announced his commitment via Twitter. He also visited ASU last month, according to Arizona Sports' John Gambadoro. The former fifth-ranked dual-threat quarterback out of high school spent the last four seasons at Florida. Jones is coming off of a 2021 campaign in which he threw for 2,734 yards and 19 touchdowns on 64.7% passing while throwing 13 interceptions.

He also led the team with 759 rushing yards on 143 attempts to go along with four scores en route to a 6-7 season for the Gators. Jones also marks the sixth quarterback on the roster behind Alabama transfer Paul Tyson, redshirt sophomore Daylin McLemore, redshirt junior Trenton Bourguet, redshirt freshman Finn Collins and true freshman Bennett Meredith. - ArizonaSports.com

  Florida coach Dan Mullen celebrated his team's 70-52 victory against lower-division Samford like nothing was wrong. He sang with his team, posed for pictures, shook hands with fans and then made excuses for one of the worst defensive performances in school history. It was more surreal than the Gators' first-half numbers Saturday. "Calling a win disappointing is disrespectful to the game and our players," Mullen said. Emory Jones accounted for 550 yards and seven touchdowns, delivering a career performance that may have - at least temporarily - saved Mullen's job. Although the Gators (5-5) ended a three-game skid, the offensive shootout in the Swamp felt more like a loss than any outcome in Mullen's four years in Gainesville.

Florida gave up a season-high 530 yards and its most points (42) ever in any half, and those defensive lapses came against a middle-of-the pack team from the Southern Conference and less than a week after Mullen fired two of his top assistants. Maybe defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and run game coordinator John Hevesy weren't the only problems. Mullen vowed to get Florida fixed following their departures that came after last week's 40-17 drubbing at South Carolina. No one expected it to happen overnight. But the Gators lacked energy Saturday, looked lost at times and trailed by as many as 14 points in a game they were favored to win by more than five touchdowns. "I don't know if people were nervous or what, but slow start," Gators linebacker Mohamoud Diabate said. "We were able to get going at halftime, get fired up and come out and finish the game." - Florida/AP College Football

  Emory Jones had a career-high four touchdowns passes, potentially quieting calls for backup Anthony Richardson, and No. 20 Florida routed woeful Vanderbilt 42-0 Saturday. It was a feel-good victory for the Gators on homecoming after a gut-wrenching loss at Kentucky essentially knocked coach Dan Mullen's team out of contention in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division. Florida (4-2, 2-2 SEC) won its eighth straight in the series and its 30th in the last 31 meetings. The Commodores (2-4, 0-2) dropped their 15th consecutive league game.

Jones was the star of this one. He completed 14 of 22 passes for 273 yards, with TD passes to Ja'Quavion Fraziars, Trent Whittemore, Dameon Pierce and Jacob Copeland. Pierce also scored twice more on short runs. Richardson played sparingly for the second straight week. His first pass was intercepted. He returned the following series but ended up giving way to Jones until getting back on the field for mop-up duty in the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt had several chances to make it more competitive, but Alabama transfer Joseph Bulovas missed three field goals. He was errant from 39, 41 and 33 yards out. The Commodores also had a touchdown overturned when Chris Pierce failed to maintain possession on a fourth-down catch when he hit the ground in the second quarter. - Florida/AP College Football

  Emory Jones had two touchdown passes to go with a career-high 144 yards rushing, leading No. 11 Florida to a 38-14 victory over Tennessee on Saturday night and extending nearly two decades of dominance in the series. The Gators (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) won their fifth straight and 16th in 17 years in a series that used to go a long way toward deciding the Eastern Division. First-year Tennessee coach Josh Heupel is trying to get it back there. The second half showed he's still got a way to go. The Gators, who bounced back from a gut-wrenching loss against top-ranked Alabama in the Swamp a week ago, scored on consecutive drives in the third quarter to turn a three-point game into comfortable lead. Jones was at his best during those possessions.

With dynamic backup Anthony Richardson still nursing a strained right hamstring, Jones completed three straight passes that set up a trick-play touchdown. Jones lateraled to Trent Whittemore, who found Kemore Gamble in the end zone for a 13-yard score. It was Florida's first trick-play TD in three years. Jones ran for 43 yards on Florida's next drive and capped it with a 9-yard TD pass to Rick Wells. Jones completed 21 of 27 passes for 209 yards on the night and ran 15 times, with a long of 49 yards. He became Florida's first QB to top 200 yards passing and 100 yards rushing since Tim Tebow in 2009 against Florida State. Tebow accomplished the feat four times in four seasons. It was the first time Jones didn't have a turnover this season. - Florida/AP College Football

  Starter Emory Jones or backup Anthony Richardson. Florida coach Dan Mullen insists the 13th-ranked Gators (2-0) don't have a quarterback controversy or a reason to change the depth chart after Richardson outplayed Jones for the second straight game in a 42-20 rout of South Florida on Saturday. "We have two quarterbacks that are pretty talented guys that can make things happen on the field," Mullen said. "But there are a lot of things quarterbacks have to do." Jones and Richardson shared playing time, with each having his way in the opening half against a USF defense that allowed touchdowns on five consecutive possessions after producing a three-and-out to start the game. Jones threw a 35-yard TD pass to Xzavier Henderson and scored on a 33-yard run on the way to a 35-3 halftime lead before a crowd of 66,646 at Raymond James Stadium.

The redshirt junior from LaGrange, Georgia, was not nearly as effective the rest of the way, though, tossing a pair of interceptions and turning the ball over on downs on four straight possessions to begin the second half. "I thought (Jones) played much better this week than last week. I just thought we got sloppy in the second half," Mullen said. "I feel like I came out a little slow in the second half, which led to those two interceptions," Jones said. "Just bad decisions by me. I shouldn't have thrown those balls." Richardson, meanwhile, took an astounding passer rating of 917.2 into the fourth quarter after completing his first two attempts to Jacob Copeland on scoring plays of 75 and 41 yards before halftime. The 6-foot-4, 236-pound backup from Gainesville, Florida, completed his only pass of the second half for 36 yards to finish 3 of 3 for 152 yards, two TDs and a 745.6 rating that seemingly would be difficult for Mullen to ignore with top-ranked and defending champion Alabama visiting The Swamp next Saturday. - Florida/AP College Football

  Following a shaky first career start last Saturday, Gators quarterback Emory Jones took ownership of his performance in the postgame news conference and again during his media availability Monday. Jones accounted for nearly 200 yards of total offense and a touchdown pass in Florida's 35-14 win over FAU, but threw two interceptions and had a turnover on downs on fourth-and-goal. "I missed too many throws that I never miss," Jones said after the game. "It's me getting more comfortable, just being out there actually being excited. Got to lock in and get better every week." Jones vowed to get back in the lab and have better attention to detail, and he's done that this week according to Florida coach Dan Mullen.

During his appearance Wednesday on the SEC teleconference, Mullen offered his take on why Jones struggled in the season opener. "Overall, he played pretty well last Saturday, but made some errors that he's not used to making," Mullen said. "I don't know if trying to do too much is the word. Almost trying to be too perfect, too exact, mind is going in a million different directions trying to do too many things on the field instead of trusting your fundamentals, your techniques and doing what you're supposed to do. "I think this week in practice I've seen that. You've seen him this week, 'Make sure my feet are exact. Am I on balance? ... My mind's not trying to process a million things. My mind's focused on what's important and what I need to do.' I've seen that and that's a good step forward." - Gainesville Sun

  Florida coach Dan Mullen insists he has no quarterback controversy: Emory Jones is the starter, and Anthony Richardson remains the backup following a 35-14 victory against Florida Atlantic on Saturday night in which one clearly outplayed the other. Jones was far from sharp in the Swamp, finishing with a touchdown and two interceptions in his first career start, but the fourth-year junior had some moments to build on moving forward. He did much of his damage with his legs, finishing with 74 of the team's 400 yards rushing.

Wearing the No. 15 that Tim Tebow made popular in Gainesville, Richardson looked more ready for the spotlight. He ran seven times for 160 yards, including a 73-yard score late in the game and an 11-yarder in which he broke three tackles and hurdled another defender. He missed his final five passes and finished 3-for-8 for 40 yards. "He's exciting with the ball in his hands, isn't he?" Mullen said of Richardson. "He's going to be a great player for us. I think you saw that tonight. His athleticism. He's a special guy with the ball in his hands." But Mullen made it clear that Jones has a better grasp of the entire offense right now and will keep his job. The outside noise, though, surely will be loud for the next week or two. "He went out there and did his thing," Jones said of Richardson. "I'm happy for him." - Florida/AP College Football

  Jones has thrown for 613 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception on 55-of-86 passing (64 percent) in his UF career, while rushing for 514 yards and six touchdowns on 92 carries. He's been efficient and productive in a limited capacity, accounting for over 1,110 yards of total offense. Mullen is confident Jones can handle more of the playbook and will give him the freedom to make his own calls. "We put it all in on him," Mullen said. "It's not like he's a freshman or hasn't been around. That's part of the experience. He's played meaningful snaps in each of the last couple seasons. He's a guy that I feel pretty comfortable (with). We'll just throw the whole thing out of him and let him go." "I think he knows he has the ability (to audible) if he sees something that he likes or that's different that we weren't planning for. A lot of times you get into a game, especially one that you don't have much film to go watch, you have to be very flexible during the course of the game. He's a guy I have the confidence in that if he sees something, he can check to it and go take what he sees."

Mullen mentioned during preseason camp that Jones, due to his dual-threat ability, executes calls differently than Trask. Sometimes Jones will take chances that Trask didn't and miss, but when he hits, the result is often an explosive play. "He has so many different ways that he can make explosive plays that, you know, you're going to live with certain things," Mullen said of Jones. - Gainesville Sun

  Feleipe Franks' ankle was mangled in a Kentucky pileup. Dan Mullen felt confident sending Trask in to rescue Florida from an 11-point deficit, but Mullen was also holding his breath. "He was going into a situation I had not seen him in, and how he was going to handle that," Mullen said. Trask handled it well. So well that the other quarterback Mullen planned to use that September afternoon never got off the bench. Two years later, Emory Jones' moment has arrived like a slow train everybody saw coming. But the eternal QB question is still in play. Is Jones ready? "There's nothing that tells me he's not going to handle it as good as anyone I've ever had," Mullen said.

That should make you feel better if you're nervous about the main topic of conversation going into preseason camp. Mullen is a modern-day Henry Ford when it comes to quarterbacks. He's built an assembly line that keeps rolling out successful products. But if you're not the least bit nervous about the Gators' QB succession, you're suffering a case of blind faith. For all the confident talk we'll hear in the next few weeks, not even Jones knows for sure if he's ready to assume the throne. The truth is, nobody can know until it happens. All we can do is look at what's led up to that moment, and then make a prediction. - Gainesville Sun

  Florida quarterback Emory Jones didn't attend SEC Media Days this past week, but his presence was still felt in Hoover, Ala. He was the first player Dan Mullen mentioned at the podium and a talking point in every room his coach entered - especially radio row. Why bring two defensive players instead of Jones? That was one of the first questions Mullen received from reporters. "I don't know if there's two more guys that have really earned the right to be here more than Ventrell [Miller] and Zach [Carter]," Mullen said. "I try to bring guys that have the experience, veteran guys." Jones isn't a vet for the Gators yet, but certainly has experience on offense. He's played every year since his true freshman season in 2018 despite being behind Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask on the depth chart.

It's now No. 5's turn to start, though first he must beat out Anthony Richardson for the job in training camp. Jones has made the most of limited opportunities and, more importantly, elevated his game. "He has continued to develop throughout his career. He has got a strong arm and he is a dynamic playmaker with his feet and he has experience," Mullen said of Jones. "If you look at his progression, I mean, he came in as a very celebrated high school player, highly ranked. I think for a couple years now, he's learned, he's grown, he's developed. "He's a completely different player than he was when he walked in, in his understanding of the game and in his maturity. … I think Emory has shown maturity from early on. It wasn't, 'I have to play from day one.' It was, 'I have to continue to be developed from day one to prepare for my moment and my time.' And that's what he's been able to do." - Gainesville Sun
