Denver Jones has announced on Twitter that he plans to enter the transfer portal after a sensational sophomore campaign.

The 6-4 guard finished the season as FIU’s leading scorer and the second-highest scorer in Conference USA, averaging 20.1 points per game on 47.8% shooting from the field. Jones also averages 1.8 steals per game, good for seventh-most in the conference.

Jones became the first Panther in program history to be named to the All-C-USA First Team. His 539 points in the 2022-23 season rank fifth all-time in single-season points for FIU.

In what is likely his last game as a Panther, Jones put up 25 points on 4-7 shooting from deep in FIU’s first-round matchup against the LA Tech Bulldogs. His efforts pushed the game to overtime, but it wasn’t enough to give FIU the win as the team fell 81-76.
