Junior wide receiver Isaiah Jones will not return to FSU for the 2015 season. Jones missed all of 2014 as he was ruled academically ineligible prior to the season. Although ineligible, Jones practiced with the team throughout the season.
After coming out of high school as a highly-touted four-star prospect, Jones had two catches in 2013 - his true freshman year - appearing in five games, and had his season cut short due to a foot injury. Jones had the potential to make it on the field with the graduation of all-time great WR Rashad Greene.
A high-ceiling talent at 6'4, Jones' departure is not a huge loss for the Seminoles, who can afford the attrition at the position (and towards the 85-scholarship count). In terms of talent, the FSU receiving group this upcoming season is the deepest of the Jimbo Fisher era, led by likely starters Ermon Lane, Travis Rudolph, and "Bobo" Wilson. Also joining the team in the Fall will be five-star receiver George Campbell, four-star receiver Da'Vante Philips, and four-star receiver Auden Tate.
