Jauan Jennings?

Where does OSU stand with Jauan Jennings? I just watched him at MTSU in the 1st round of the basketball state tournament and he was by far the best athlete on the court. I watched him play football earlier this year too. He was a good QB but better on the defensive side of the ball. I haven't heard his name pop up lately. He looks to be about 6-3 and probably 190-200lbs. I saw his dad and from the looks of his genetics his frame will hold another 30-40lbs and he might grow a little more. Has the OSU staff cooled on him or do they have more guys above him on their board?

He's definitely a good athlete, listed on 247 at 6'4" and 185, but from what I've gathered from reading and seeing him play in person, there's a question of whether he can play QB at the next level. I don't know if he's wanting to play QB for sure or if he's willing to play defense or possibly receiver.

I know OSU had interest in him earlier but don't know where things stand. He did receiver an Alabama offer a couple months back, so that's pretty big. And I know UT would like to have him stay in state.

Buckeyes view him as an athlete who could play QB, and they like his skill-set. Didn't have a great visit to OSU when he came up last fall, and Ohio State would need him back on campus in my opinion.

He didn't like what he saw or the coaches didn't get a good vibe from him? I know the coaches are starting to look for kids with certain personalities that fit their program.
