Buckeyes Signee Dre'Mont Jones Injured During High School Basketball Game

Cleveland St. Ignatius standout Dre'Mont Jones suffered what appears to be a serious knee injury during the Wildcats 60-56 win in tonight's basketball playoff game against Avon. The injury happened early in the game.

Jones was taken off the court, unable to put any pressure on his right leg. Moments later, the Ohio State signee – ranked as the country's 136th-ranked player in the 2015 recruiting class – updated his situation on his own Twitter account.

Jones was expected by many close to the Ohio State program to be an early contributor for the Buckeyes. If he did in fact tear his ACL, he'd be the third member of the 2015 class to have suffered that injury. Cornerback Jamel Dean and athlete AJ Alexander each tore their ACL in the last year as well.
