After two seasons in a Hoosiers uniform and one season in a Cowboy uniform, guard Curtis Jones will hang up with Oklahoma State uniform and return to the Big Ten to play for the blue and white of the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Jones announced May 24th that he would enter the transfer portal for the second time, and he eventually made the decision to return to Big Ten Basketball.

During his time at Indiana, Jones scored an average of 3.5 points per game during his freshman year. After playing only seven games in his sophomore year for the Hoosiers, Jones decided to transfer to Oklahoma State.

After sitting out the remainder of the 2016-2017 season, Jones came back as a redshirt sophomore and averaged 8.5 points per game for the Cowboys.

While it hasn’t been made obvious the exact reason for Jones’ second transfer, Penn State offers Jones a spot on a growing and rebuilding team.

Jones acted as the sixth man at Oklahoma State and could be in search of a staring position come winter.

Jones will be entering Penn State as a graduate student, giving him eligibility to play immediately next season.
