Four-Star Defensive End Dre'Mont Jones Commits to Ohio State

The Buckeyes landed one of the top prospects in state of Ohio today, as Cleveland St. Ignatius defensive end Dre'Mont Jones committed to Ohio State during his visit.

The Jones File

  • Size: 6-5/250
  • School: St. Ignatius (Cleveland, OH)
  • Position: DE
  • Class: 2015
  • Composite: ★★★★
  • Rank: 12 (SDE)

The four-star end chose the Buckeyes over offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Kentucky and others, and in doing so, becomes Urban Meyer's fifth commitment in the last 10 days. Hello, hot streak.

Jones picked up his offer from Ohio State in late February and the Buckeyes have been considered the favorites since. He visited Ohio State for the first time in March and at the time said Ohio State had set the bar high, but he wanted to continue exploring his options.

Following a visit to Michigan at the end of March, Jones picked up an offer from the Wolverines, giving him something to think about. Although Jones called Ohio State his "childhood dream school," like many local prospects, he kept an open mind during the process. In the end, the dream school was the right fit for Jones.

Jones brings great size and athleticism to Ohio State's defensive line, where he projects as a strong-side defensive end. He also plays basketball, which gives you an idea of how good of an athlete he is at defensive end.

As a junior at St. Ignatius, Jones collected 43 tackles and five sacks. He played alongside Ohio State 2014 signee Kyle Berger in the Wildcats defense.

I normally don't like calling people out, but I wonder if Skid is feeling sheepish for doubting the state of our recruiting: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/2014/06/363...

Amen! Skid has gotten enough criticism over the last couple of weeks (some from me). I saw his remarks the other day - he gets it, guys.

+3 HS
rdubs's picture

Whoa sorry all, didn't expect this kind of backlash.  Maybe I missed some of the criticism beyond that thread.  At that time no one could have predicted the coming avalanche of commits, so I thought both sides were being a bit dramatic.  Regardless sorry for causing a ruckus, I think people here know me as someone who respects others even when I don't agree with them.

Nutty's picture

I agree we should let it go but he criticized one recruit, not the entire recruiting class so your "call out" isn't even correct.
 

rdubs's picture

Really don't want to belabor this any more as I mentioned above, but what I meant was that he said that there was no reason for us to believe that the dominoes would start to fall.  Therefore, given the recent flood of commits, he turned out to be wrong in hindsight.
