A shocking decision from Cardale Jones.
The quarterback who led Ohio State to the National Championship has announced at a news conference he will return to school next season.
It was widely assumed Jones would enter the NFL Draft after rising to stardom in shocking fashion once J.T. Barrett went down with a broken ankle.
He used his Twitter as a tease prior to announcing his decision.
Jones led Ohio State to a 59-0 shut-out win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game, a stunning 42-35 win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and a dominating 42-20 win over Oregon in the National Title game.
He threw for 860 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions in his three starts while compiling a 160.2 passer rating.
This is no doubt a risky decision from Jones, since there’s no guarantee he will win the starting quarterback at Ohio State job entering next season, and whether his stock will ever be as high as it is right now.
According to Jones, no promises were made from coach Urban Meyer about him being named the starter heading into next season.
Draft experts said Jones could be drafted as early as the 2nd round, and he drew comparisons to Ben Roethlisberger.
Jones once tweeted about how he came to school to play football, and not go to class. Clearly, his attitude has changed since then.
