Can't blame a guy for taking his game up a level to compete for a championship. Sounds like his former teammates feel the same.

The pain of discipline or the pain of regret, take your pick

I get what you are saying there, and I agree. 

As far as Rutgers, Chris Ash is a top notch guy and coach.

As WW Hayes said, you win with people;  If Rutgers can get the players they need, Ash will figure out a way to win.

If someone can ever get the recruiting component figured out at Rutgers... man. I still say that's a sleeping giant given the talent within a short drive.

May we should recruit the 'cannon guys' too.  They need something to do!   BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!

We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind

Jackson seems to be a quality addition to the team. Hopefully he will stay healthy and be a major contributor for us.

That’s refreshing to hear. I think Jackson will be one of the pillars of the OL this year 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Reading this, started thinking about last years recruiting rankings, Fields, Him and Gunner, doesn’t always tell the entire story. Plug those 3 in it, where would that put us, last year?

Jonah Jackson's skill set, leadership, and maturity will be needed this fall.  It was great to read of the high regard his former teammates had for him.  Experienced, high quality young men are always welcome!  Go Bucks!

If all this is going to work, it has to start up front.

Jonah Jackson is a big addition to the oline.

Great read.

It sounds like Jonah Jackson will bring a lot to the locker room as well as the field. Looking forward to seeing him contribute this fall.

Sounds like a starting right or left tackle. I'll take right, considering how hard working Thayer Munford is at left tackle.

It is time!!!!!

He’s a guard or center if necessary. Definitely not a tackle.

Can you feel it? 

It's about that time of year boys. The reason why Ohio is the greatest state in the union, and why I could never live anywhere that didn't prioritize football above all else. Go bucks! Fuck Michigan!

We have 6 or 7 guys fighting for playing time on the O line now. Play the top 5 a lot and reward the next 3 with significant playing time as a back up. Our 2 deep on O line should have not much drop from 1st to 2nd team. Substitute when needed and avoid injuries into and through the post season.

Depth on the O-line is a huge concern heading in to this season.  Adding a player like Jackson was almost essential if we're going to have a realistic chance of meeting our goals.  If everything they're saying about him is true, he should fit in nicely as one of our starting guards. 

Jackson, Myers, Davis should make for an awfully tough interior -

Nothing better a coach can say about a player.

There's a Steve Miller Band song title or lyric somewhere in the article title, but the only one I thought of quickly could possibly be looked at as a jinx, so there was no way in hell I was using it.

Always good to have more depth, if not a top talent on the team, at a position, so good luck and good health to Jonah on his last year of eligibility here with the Buckeyes.

Will confess that song was playing in my head too when I wrote the headlines, haha.

Nice! (That means that observation's not solely a function of my old age.)

Well, my musical tastes are definitely older than my age, so I might not be the best example to go off...

TUNAWarrior's picture

Haha! That's more like it.  (I'm assuming, at least, you had a good musical upbringing.  And I can't give enough kudos to parents for things like that.  In addition, you know, to being good parents/providers.)

Whew, I was worried lol

I'm looking forward to his contribution on a rebuilt OL, expecting the interior 3 to be nasty in the run game, something we didn't have last year. If Jackson is also great in pass blocking, we could have the kind of line we've been looking for.

HS

His leadership will be so valuable on this OL that's breaking in quite a few new guys. With his past experience at center, I'm sure he'll be helping Josh Myers whenever he needs it.

Is he NFL material? This worked out very well for Ohio State.

I will also say that the feelings by players for those that are graduate transfers seem MUCH different than those articles I have read on sites about players that transfer and are NOT graduates. I believe their is a feeling of mercenary and those left have quotes far more of the nature that "he was never one of us in the first place."
