Ohio State got some very tremendous news on the eve on National Signing day as Chicago (IL) De La Salle Institute offensive tackle Jamarco Jones reaffirmed his commitment to the Buckeyes as first reported by Beth Long of Scout.com, just a couple of days after taking an official visit to East Lansing for one last look at Michigan State.

Keeping Jones in the fold is huge for the Buckeyes as it keeps their class of five offensive linemen as one of the nation's best. This race started to trend towards the Spartans a few weeks ago after news broke that he would be taking an official visit to East Lansing, but Urban Meyer, Ed Warinner, Larry Johnson, and company did a great job of keeping Jones in the fold for Ohio State.
Jones, who received a National Letter of Intent from both the Buckeyes and Spartans, is expected to fax his LOI to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center sometime tomorrow, which will officially end his recruitment and the worries of Ohio State fans and coaches.
The 6'5, 295-pound tackle might have the highest ceiling of the o-linemen Ohio State is taking this class and will have a legitimate chance of making the two-deep once he arrives on campus in June.
