LSU defensive back transferring

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU defensive back Phelon Jones has
decided to transfer.

Coach Les Miles made the announcement on Friday, but did not say
where Jones was going.

Jones, redshirt freshman last season, will finish out the spring
semester at LSU before transferring.

Jones signed with LSU in February 2007 out of Mobile, Ala.

In 2008, Jones played in nine games with two starts. He finished
with 15 total tackles, which included a career-best six stops in
wins over Troy and North Texas.
