Emory Jones has been committed to Ohio State for almost an entire year as he gave the Buckeyes a commitment back in August of 2016 and has been pretty steadfast in that commitment so far. However, he has been talking to at least one other school as he told 247Sports.
He was at Ohio State’s Friday Night Lights event this weekend and made it quite clear he’s still committed to the Buckeyes. However, he was recently at a camp at Alabama and says he’s listening to what the Crimson Tide staff has to say.
“Yeah, I am,” he said. “I’m just taking everything from them and just listening to them. I’m just letting them talk.”
He also admitted that the Ohio State staff is not terribly enthusiastic about the idea, but he has been talking with them about it.
“They’re not a big fan of me doing that,” Jones said. “They just want me to communicate with them about it. You know, every time I go somewhere, just tell them and do things like that. Just be honest with them.”
Honesty is key in any relationship, even if it’s between a school and a recruit. Jones also said that he’s been going to other places because he doesn’t feel he had a chance to do so since he committed so early in the process. He wants to get out and see what else is out there to make sure Ohio State is the place he wants to be next year. He mentioned visiting Florida, but that they would be the last school on his visit list.
The 6’4″, 180-pound dual-threat QB is ranked as the No. 2 player at the position and No. 17 recruit in the nation overall by Rivals. The Franklin, Ga. native also has offers from Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia Tech among others.
Here are some of his highlights:
