Dre'Mont Jones commits to Ohio State

In-state defensive end Dre'Mont Jones committed to Ohio State today while on an unofficial visit to Columbus.

When he received a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes about three months ago many people, including myself thought it was only going to be a matter of time before the Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius defensive end Dre'Mont Jones ended his recruitment and committed to the Buckeyes.

Today was the day as he told Urban Meyer and the coaching staff that he wanted to be a Buckeye while on an unofficial visit.

The 6'5, 250 pound defensive end checks in as the 15th best player in the state of Ohio, the 12th rated strong-side defensive end in the nation, and the 299th overall player in the 2015 recruiting class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

In addition to the offer from Ohio State, Jones held offers from  Cincinnati, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish, Wildcats and Wolverines were the Buckeyes' top competition to land the Buckeye state standout.

Jones becomes the fifth player from the state of Ohio to join the 2015 recruiting class, with the others being Eric-Glover Williams, Joe Burrow, Liam McCullough and Nick Conner. Dre'Mont will join his former St. Ignatius teammate and close friend Kyle Berger on the football team when he arrives on campus in 2015.

The coverage of Jones' commitment doesn't stop here as we plan to catch up with the newest Buckeye later today in order to learn more about his commitment. We'll also discuss the impact of his commitment later today as well.
