Urban Meyer says Cardale Jones is his starting QB


Though he was replaced by J.T. Barrett for a short time in Saturday’s 38-0 win over Hawaii, Cardale Jones has been confirmed as the Ohio State Buckeyes’ starting quarterback by coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer also noted that Barrett would continue to get opportunities, but it’s looking like Jones will be the starting man under center for the foreseeable future.

Jones’ status was reported on Twitter by Bleacher Report’s Ben Axelrod.

Jones did not play well in Ohio State’s win, completing 12 of 18 pass attempts for just 111 yards and no touchdowns. Barrett was not much better once he stepped in, going just 8 of 15 for 70 yards and no touchdowns. Instead, the Buckeyes rode 101 rushing yards and three touchdowns from Ezekiel Elliott to victory.

But the fact that Jones has been officially named the starting quarterback by Meyer should offer some closure to all parties involved. Moreover, it should up Jones’ confidence over the rest of the season.

Ohio State looks to continue its dominance of the sport on Saturday against the MAC’s Northern Illinois Huskies.
