Paul Jones is now the latest backup quarterback to transfer out of Penn State.
On Monday, Jones tweeted his intention to leave the school and play football at Robert Morris University, in his hometown of Pittsburgh.
And, presumably, where he will be a quarterback.
Jones, a redshirt sophomore, lost the starting QB battle to Matt McGloin this spring and eventually was moved to tight end at the beginning of the season.
He then left the team less than two weeks later.
Jones had come to the Nittany Lions from Sto-Rox High as one of the top quarterback prospects in the nation — and one of the biggest, eventually growing to 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds.
He featured good mobility and tremendous arm strength but after redshirting in 2010, academic problems held him out of action last year.
He finished third in the quarterback competition this summer, losing the main backup role to true freshman Steven Bench.
Now he will start over at Robert Morris, which is a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) team that is 4-6 this season.
Jones joins other recent disenchanted Penn State backup quarterback who have transferred, including Pat Devlin (Delaware), Kevin Newsome (Temple) and Rob Bolden (LSU).
