Paul Jones' football journey has been a roundabout one recently, but, for the time being, it looks as if it will feature a return to Pittsburgh.
Jones, a former Sto-Rox High School standout who left the Penn State football team in late September, tweeted Monday that he will transfer to and continue his career at Robert Morris.
"I'll be going to school at Robert Morris University and will be playing football there," Jones tweeted from his personal account.
Because of NCAA rules, the school could not confirm that Jones would be joining the team, but athletic department officials said that the team is "actively recruiting him."
Ranked among the top-10 quarterback prospects nationally by Scout and Rivals coming out of Sto-Rox, Jones was a backup quarterback for the Nittany Lions before being moved to tight end by first-year coach Bill O'Brien. Jones left the team after its fourth game of the season.
Since Robert Morris is a Division I-AA school, Jones will be eligible for the Colonials in the 2013 season.
