Jamarco Jones commits to Ohio State

The newest Buckeye, Jamarco Jones - Bud Elliott-SB Nation

'14 4-star offensive tackle Jamarco Jones commits to Ohio State, giving the "Dream 14" number fourteen.

After long been thought to be favoring Ohio State (before a late surge from Michigan State coupled with Jones' impressive for a teenager ability to prevent a leak made things far more interesting than they otherwise could have been), '14 4-star offensive tackle Jamarco Jones made it official committing today at a ceremony at his high school to play his college football for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes. Jones had previously visited Ohio State this past February for the Buckeyes' Junior Day. He visited all three of his favorites from June 15th to June 17th (the third being Michigan), before making his final decision. Jones joins a loaded class of 2014 that already includes fellow classmates Marcelys Jones and Kyle Trout in providing some real firepower to the future of OSU offensive line play.

Jones hails from the state of Illinois and checks in at 6'5", 290-pounds and had offers from some of the top programs in the country, including Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, and many more besides just his three favorites. The Chicago-native is rated as the No. 3 player in the state of Illinois, the 4th-best prospect at his position and ranks as the 50th best player in the country, according to 247Sports's Composite rankings.

Head coach Urban Meyer mentioned the disappointment in not being able to close out on more elite offensive tackles in the class of 2013 during his National Signing Day press conference. Now, the Buckeyes have signed three offensive linemen in the class of 2014 – and it's not out of the question that they add another sooner rather than later. Stay tuned.
