QB Donovahn Jones flips from Mizzou to Minnesota

Donovahn Jones, a three-star recruit from Georgia, flipped his commitment from the Missouri Tigers to the Gophers on Tuesday.

The underlining reason behind the defection from the SEC Tigers was that he was recruited as a wide receiver.

Jones, who plays quarterback at the high school level, will get a chance to play the same position as a Golden Gopher.

The six-foot-two, 189 lbs athlete is the 18th commitment in Minnesota’s class and the second quarterback that has committed to Minnesota this year — the first is Chris Streveler.
