    Jones looked very good last night. He has good arm strength, but most of his throws were of the fastball variety. He ran very effectively, including several clutch runs in key situations. His TD run was great, as he showed good patience staying behind his blockers until he was well downfield.
     
  6. I would ask him what he thought about greyshirting, show him all the talent we are bringing in, tell him he would have a chance to compete with Miller/Grahm/Guiton when Pryor leaves. If he says no, I tell him you have an offer.

    Kid has too much raw talent to pass up, and I believe that if QB doesn't work out you can play him out at WR.

    As a QB, he is raw, but he has the arm strength, he doesn't always step into his throws, but give him 2-3 years in a system with a good coach and I think we would all be pleased...

    After what I saw last night, Cardale will be a big time national recruit next year!

    Kids who greyshirt usually 1. don't have many other good offers and 2. come from families with enough money that they don't really care about footing the tuition bill for the first year.

    Jones will probably get some great offers (rumors of Michigan coming soon) and, though I don't know for sure, coming from the Glenville neighborhood probably isn't from a rich family.

    He seems like a perfect guy to offer because if things don't workout at QB, he could move to a different position and be a contributor on special teams. If things do end up working out, his potential seems to be off the charts.

    I'd love to see what would happen if OSU developed better depth at QB so that it could redshirt kids and then have them start as 3rd or 4th year guys. I think when that depth is in place, it is a lot easier to take a flyer on someone like Jones.

    fourteenandoh My swing feels like an unfolding lawn chair.

    While channel flipping the other night I came upon the Glenville-Massilon game. I don't follow HS football much, so I wasn't going to watch it, but I was enthralled watching their QB. IMO, he is a star. He looks to have a rocket arm, and he is very agressive when he runs. He lowered the boom on more than a few massilon DBs. The deep ball he threw near the end of the game on the 3rd and 5 was beautiful. It was a bit long, and went incomplete, but it was a great play action. Really reminded me of TS the way he sold the handoff.

    I will definitely watch the state final just to see how he does when the pressure is really on.

    That is a huge game on a huge stage for Jones. You gotta be impressed.

    I will say this fast so we can get back to Jones but just because he goes to Glenville does not mean that he is from that neighborhood. That Academy attracts kids from the greater Cleveland area not just the Glenville neighborhood.

    Jones looked pretty good tonight

    Jones looked pretty good despite the loss. Pretty decent form, squaring his shoulders, good arm strength and accuracy. Combined with his size and mobility, I'd love to see him as a Buckeye.

    I hope that he gets a Buckeye offer next year. He will be a good one.
