It has not been a very good time for Jack Jones right now. Per Keely Eure of USCFootball.com , Jack Jones was arrested by Ventura County Police and booked on two felony counts for commercial burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime. Bail has been set at $20,000.

Jack Jones has had a very turbulent off-season at USC. Clay Helton announced at the beginning of spring practice that Jones would be forced to sit out for season opener against UNLV due to a violation of team rules. Jones would then sit out spring practices to focus on academics. He was later ruled academically ineligible back in May which would force to sit the 2018 season. Weeks later after reports of Jones no longer being apart of the USC program, he would confirm reports of leaving USC to attend classes at a junior college and work to become eligible and possibly return to USC. With the news of his arrest, this closes the door on his returning to the program.

Last season Jones led the Trojans in interceptions with 4 and tallied 40 tackles . While he had a solid role playing opposite of Iman Marshall, he had issues giving up big plays and committing penalties which would hurt the Trojans secondary. Despite all of that, he was named as 3rd team defensive All-American at the end of the 2017 season.
