Last year it was Will Grier that fans of the Florida Gators were watching from afar as the talented pocket-passer shined at the Elite 11 camp and performed admirably during the 7-on-7 portion of The Opening. This year, it’s four-star commit Sheriron Jones (Moreno Valley, Calif. Rancho Verde) who will look to make a name for himself, and he’s off to a tremendous start.
The 6-2.5, 190-pound Jones is the nation’s No. 186 recruit overall regardless of position, the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 27 recruit in the state of California, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, and after this week could be in line for a boost up the rankings.
Jones has been one of the standouts on the first day of the Elite 11 quarterback camp and has backed up his four-star grade with great timing on his throws and shows he belongs with the five-star recruits in attendance.

Here’s a glimpse of some of the work Jones has done during the first day of workouts and let your imaginations run wild Gator fans with picturing him operating Kurt Roper’s hurry-up, spread offense in the coming years.
There’s nothing too flashy about this video below, but it shows his quick feet, delivery and release.
Jones committed to the Gators after a weekend visit nearly one month ago to the day on June 8.
