Former Mississippi State cornerback Jarrian Jones is transferring to Florida State.

Last week it was reported that the rising sophomore was heading to rival Ole Miss, but Jones confirmed his commitment to the Seminoles Monday on Twitter.

He posted a photo of himself in a Florida State uniform with the words "Committed" and "Jones Island."

Jones played in 11 games for the Bulldogs as a true freshman in 2019, including one start against Texas AM on Oct. 26.

He finished the season with 12 tackles, two passes defensed and one fumble recovery.

He has three seasons of eligibility remaining, but will have to sit out the 2020 campaign barring a waiver from the NCAA.

A four-star recruit in the Class of 2019, Jones was ranked as the No. 217 player in the nation and the No. 18 safety by the 247Sports composite.

Jones is the fifth Mississippi State player to transfer this offseason, joining guard Stewart Reese (Florida), quarterback Keytaon Thompson (Virginia), offensive lineman Brevyn Jones (Illinois) and defensive tackle Fabien Lovett (undecided).
