Ohio State’s biggest question mark in the 2024 class continues to be just how the Buckeyes will wrap things up along the defensive line. Ohio State continues to recruit several D-Line prospects from all over the nation and the Buckeyes still have at least a couple of spots left to fill in the next two months.
Early this week, the Buckeyes offered a new prospect in Bay City (TX) product Carlon Jones. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound prospect has been committed to Nebraska since June. While Jones remains committed to the Cornhuskers, the Buckeyes have his attention enough to make an official visit in two weeks.
“I’m excited about the opportunity,” Jones told BuckeyeHuddle.com of the offer from Ohio State. “I’m going to visit November 11th. I’m committed to Nebraska, but have to keep an open mind and hopefully make the best decision that will help me get to the NFL.”
That November 11th visit to Ohio State will be an official visit for Jones who is just in the beginning stages of building a relationship with Buckeyes’ defensive line coach Larry Johnson. Ohio State is still recruiting several EDGE and strong-side end prospects, but Jones is being recruited to play on the interior.
“He sounds like great guy,” Jones said of Johnson. “I can’t wait to meet him in person. He wants me to play the 3 tech.”
Jones will get a collision course on everything Ohio State in two weeks but for a player with NFL dreams, the Buckeyes already check a lot of boxes.
“They are a top notch team,” he said of the Buckeyes. “I love everything about them. They can get you to the league for sure.”
