When it comes to the game of quarterback recruiting, Ohio State seems to always be on top.
On Friday, four-star quarterback Emory Jones announced his much anticipated commitment to the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-1, 193 pounder currently ranks N0. 3 on the list of top dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation, and N0. 34 overall in the class of 2018.
Frequently we see players announce their commitments through a simple Twitter post, but Jones’ was slightly different. The young signal-caller announced his decision to become a Buckeye with a video for Bleacher Report.
In his decision to join the Ohio State roster, he passed up Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson and numerous other prestigious programs.
Ohio State is just getting started with their 2018 recruiting class, and it’s obvious that it will be a strong one. Jones is just their second commit in addition to four-star running back Brian Snead.
Time will tell if it will match the power of Urban Meyer’s 2017 class, which included four-star quarterbacks Danny Clark and Tate Martell.
It’s safe to say that the Buckeyes will be sitting pretty at the quarterback position for many years to come.
