Cardale Jones did not have the huge 2015 college football season that many were expecting him to have. He led the Ohio State Buckeyes to a national championship win last year, but didn’t improve the way many thought he could. Reports had broken that he would enter the 2016 NFL Draft, but that might not end up being the case when everything is said and done.
Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole is reporting that the situation is still fluid and that Jones could return for his senior season and transfer from Ohio State.
Throughout the course of the 2015 season, Jones has completed 62.5 percent of his pass attempts for 1,460 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Ohio State fans love Jones, but seeing him transfer could turn them against him very quickly.
It would be very intriguing to see what would end up happening if he did decide to transfer. There would be many teams that would be interested in bringing him on board. Jones still has the potential to be a star quarterback, but it will take a lot of hard work to get to that point.
Ohio State will continue starting J.T. Barrett at quarterback next season, which seems like a better fit for them than Jones was earlier this year.
Jones originally commented that he would enter the draft and not transfer because he was loyal to the Buckeyes. Backtracking on that would be extremely difficult for the Buckeyes’ fan base to swallow.
Expect to hear more news on Jones in the coming weeks and Campus Sports will have the updates for you.
