Ohio State QB Cardale Jones To Return For Junior Season

Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones announced Thursday he will not enter the 2015 NFL draft. The redshirt sophomore quarterback tweeted that he had a life-changing announcement to make this afternoon. With only three starts under his belt, albeit three wins that led to a National Championship for the Buckeyes, Cardale is viewed by NFL scouts as raw, but with a ton of upside. Jones led the Buckeyes to a 59-0 victory over Wisconsin for a Big Ten Championship. He then led the Buckeyes over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, 42-35. He then capped off the season with a 42-20 victory over the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship Game. Jones made the announcement from his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
