Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones surprisingly announced that he will not enter the NFL draft and instead return to school.
Ohio State third-string quarterback Cardale Jones became a part of one of the biggest storylines in college football history by guiding the Buckeyes to a national championship.
After J.T. Barrett went down with a leg injury, Jones led the Buckeyes to victories over Wisconsin and Alabama before they beat Oregon in the title game.
Despite playing only three games, Jones was expected to possibly enter the NFL draft since he has been out of high school for three years.
However, Jones has announced that he will return to school in a shocking announcement. Jones will battle Barrett for the starting quarterback job, but it will be hard to say no to a player that led his team to their first national title since 2002.
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter announced Jones’ surprising decision on Twitter.
Cardale Jones is returning to OSU.
