Jones graduated high school early and enrolled for the spring semester at Penn State in the spring of 2009. During his freshman season in 2010, Jones was a Redshirt and served as the quarterback on Penn State's scout team. While he showed promise and was expected to compete for the quarterback job in 2011, he had academic troubles and was forced to sit out due to ineligibility. He did regain eligibility for the 2012 season. Though he was initially entrenched in a 4-way QB competition with Matt McGloin, Rob Bolden and Shane McGregor, he was moved to tight end and appeared in his first game against Navy, where he caught one pass for seven yards. Jones left the Penn State football team midway through the 2012 season. He transferred from Penn State to Robert Morris University, where he will have two years of eligibility remaining. Jones is projected as the odds on favorite to be the starting quarterback at RMU for the 2013 season. Jones was ruled academically ineligible for the 2014 season.
Jones is the son of Paul Sr. and Jenifer Jones. He has 4 younger brothers: Malcolm, Jeremiah, Daniel, and Kristifer. He also has a sister, Jena.
