The USC football program is reportedly moving on from sophomore linebacker Levi Jones, who has been dismissed from the program, according to Chris Trevino of USCFootball.com.

After doing some digging about the potential reason for dismissing Jones, Trevino noted that “An arrest record with the Pasadena Police Department matching Jones’ names, age and birthday shows an arrest made early morning on July 8th for a misdemeanor crime with a bail of $250. Jones was released just before noon on the same day.”

The sophomore linebacker was not on the sideline during USC’s last game against Cal. However, Jones has been a key player for the Trojans during his first two seasons with the program. Appearing in 18 games, including 10 as a true freshman, he’s tallied 28 tackles.

A former four-star prospect out of Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, Jones was a key member of last year’s recruiting class.
