Richt also says all his class of rising seniors, with the exception of tight end Orson Charles, are returning.
A group of 15 third-year players, including rising junior quarterback Aaron Murray, joined Richt at Friday's news conference.
Jones, a third-year sophomore in 2011 who began his career at Southern Cal, led the Southeastern Conference and ranked fifth in the nation with 13 1/2 sacks this season, the second-highest total in school history.
Jones is in New Haven, Conn., this week with other Walter Camp All-America selections.
Charles announced plans to enter the NFL draft earlier in the week. Safety Bacarri Rambo, another rising junior, said this week he will return for his senior season.
