Ohio State commit Emory Jones flips to Florida

Once a centerpiece of the 2018 class, the blue chip QB will be playing somewhere else.

Once thought to be one of the centerpieces of Ohio State’s 2018 recruiting class, Emory Jones will officially be signing elsewhere.

After taking visits to Florida and Florida State recently, Jones made it official, signing paperwork to join the Florida class of 2018.

The high four-star QB would have been one of the highest rated QB recruits in recent Ohio State memory, and had offers and interest from virtually every other major program, from Alabama to Auburn, Clemson and more.

The Buckeyes won’t be without a quarterback in this cycle, as they recently flipped three-star Matthew Baldwin from Colorado State. But, this does mean that another elite option will not be joining what is already a pretty crowded quarterback room at Ohio State.

Even with the possibility of other late flips away from the Buckeyes, Ohio State is poised to sign yet another elite recruiting class, one that could finish as high as No. 1 in the country, depending on how things break elsewhere.
