BOOM! Breaking news out of Columbus as Rutgers grad transfer, Jonah Jackson, has committed to the Buckeyes. Jackson, who is in his final year of eligibility, will be able to play right away.
This is a huge get for the Buckeyes and one that fans had been waiting a little while for. Jackson is an All-Big Team honorable mention player and previously a captain at Rutgers. With the state of the Buckeyes offensive linemen having some unknowns, Jackson was a must get. Realistically, a number of guys could start at many positions, but it seems like Jackson could be slotted at a guard position or possibly even center.
Ohio State really had to work hard for this commitment, as Oklahoma finished second in the race for his services. The Sooners have had one of the best offensive lines the past few seasons, so their interest in Jackson proves just how coveted he was.
Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Jonah, we are glad to have you!
