As expected, Emory Jones will officially visit Alabama as it has been reported that Jones is in Tuscaloosa today ahead of the Crimson Tide's matchup with Tennessee.

Jones, rated as the #36 overall player and the #3 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 class, has now visited Alabama four times since committing to Ohio State on June 29, 2016.
Ohio State quarterbacks coach Ryan Day was in Franklin, Georgia at Heard County High School yesterday where he saw Jones, and later stayed for his game, a 49-15 win over Jordan High School.
To ensure Ohio State has a contingency plan in the event Jones does flip, the Buckeyes have reached out to Kentucky commit Jarren Williams and Virginia Tech commit Quincy Patterson to gauge their interest and potentially set up official visits.
While Ohio State defensive line pledges Brenton Cox (last week) and Antwuan Jackson (today) have also visited Alabama, their commitments should still be considered very solid as Cox simply went to see a friend who played for Arkansas and Jackson's trip has been planned since before he was committed to Ohio State.
Jones will head to Ohio State next week when the Buckeyes take on Penn State in what should surely be an amazing atmosphere for a visit.
