Just over a week is all that stands between now and the season opener for the Ohio State Buckeyes football program when Bowling Green State heads to Columbus Ohio next Saturday. While all of the focus and attention from inside the Buckeye program is on the in-state Falcons, when it's Ohio State, it's always a safe bet that recruiting is still at the forefront of the staff's thoughts. In this business, recruiting never ends and because of the same type of attitude displayed by the Ohio State staff, they have nearly a hand-picked 2017 class that leads the nation in every major recruiting circuit. For Ohio State in 2016 and 2017 (and nearly every year in Urban Meyer's tenure) business has been booming.

Jones ready for Ohio State
Make no mistake about it. Ohio State is set for years to come at the quarterback position. With 2018 already wrapped up after landing their first choice, Emory Jones (Franklin, GA / Heard County) Ohio State quarterback's coach, Tim Beck has to be more than excited for the future as well as his present situation.
Jones, the nation's top ranked dual-threat quarterback by 247sports committed to Ohio State nearly a month ago, and is already wanting to get to Columbus and suit up for his future school of choice. While two years in his prep career are standing in the way of Jones and his college career, it's not hard to get excited about the talent he will bring to the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound signal caller has already been at work recruiting for his 2018 class and it's clear to see that as the face of 2018's recruiting class, the trend of success has no sign of stopping any time soon.
