4-star offensive tackle Jamarco Jones didn’t want to wait until National Signing Day to make his pledge.
Jones committed to Ohio State way back in June, but did not remain committed. He took several unofficial visits to Ohio State during the season and went on his unofficial visit to Columbus to check out Ohio State in December. He wound up committing to the Buckeyes again two weeks ago. Then, he decided that he was going to visit the team that defeated Ohio State in the Big 10 Championship Game, the Michigan State Spartans. He took a trip to East Lansing to check out Michigan State over the weekend and many thought he would flip and sign with the Spartans on Signing Day.
Fortunately for Buckeyes’ fans, that wasn’t the case.
On Tuesday night, Jones committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Again.
