One of Ohio State's top remaining targets in the 2024 class is back on the market.

Four-star defensive tackle Carlon Jones decommitted from Nebraska on Tuesday, reopening his recruitment just over three weeks before National Signing Day.

Jones has an upcoming official visit with Ohio State scheduled for Dec. 8-10. He was offered by OSU defensive line coach Larry Johnson on Oct. 30. He was supposed to be in attendance for the Buckeyes' final home game against Minnesota, but Jones had to reschedule his visit to December. 

Per 247Sports' composite rankings, Jones is considered the 410th-best prospect and the 45th-ranked defensive lineman in the 2024 class. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound prospect has racked up 95 tackles (30 for loss) with 17.5 sacks, 23 quarterback hurries and a fumble recovery for Bay City High School (Bay City, Texas) this season. In his junior year, he recorded 102 tackles (29 for loss) with 13 sacks and a pass breakup.

Should Jones commit to OSU, he'd be the fourth defensive lineman in the Buckeyes' 2024 class, joining Eddrick Houston, Justin Scott and Eric Mensah.
