A short while ago, Emory Jones, a four-star quarterback from Franklin, Georgia, became the fourth 2018 quarterback offered by Ohio State.
Jones told 11W in April that he'd always been a big fan of the Buckeyes and that a potential offer from Ohio State could change his recruitment.
"I've always loved the school itself, and I feel like I fit in really well with the offense," Jones said when asked what he likes about Ohio State. "I'm comfortable talking to the coaches."
Tim Beck was expected to visit Jones on Monday, but that visit was delayed until Wednesday afternoon and the country's 2nd-ranked 2018 quarterback – and 41st overall prospect – impressed.
"He told me I'm one of the top quarterbacks he's seen, regardless of class," Jones said of his post-workout conversation with Beck. "He's gonna recruit me really hard, and he's looking forward to me getting up there this summer."
"This summer" means a likely early-June stop in Columbus for one of the Buckeyes' one-day camps. That will give Jones a chance to see the school for the first time and his first opportunity to meet with Urban Meyer.
The timing of that camp is important. Jones had designs on an early decision – most expected him to commit to Tennessee in April before the Buckeyes got involved in his recruitment – and he says he'd still like to make a decision relatively soon. He's got the schools in mind, and now it's just about putting the pieces together.
"I have all the offers I've dreamed of having now," Jones added. "It's just all about building a bigger relationship with coaches now. I will probably (decide) by the end of the summer."
