After just three college football starts but three championship wins, Ohio State QB Cardale Jones is now being looked at as a serious NFL prospect, and he is considering it.
“I’m not going to say ‘definitely,’” Jones said, via NFL.com. “(The NFL) is something that I’ll consider. My most important focus is getting my degree.”
Jones, a redshirt sophomore, would be eligible to enter the NFL today, and with three spectacular games (all on the national stage) on his resume his stock might be as high as it will ever be if he becomes a starter at Ohio State or even another school in 2015.
After starting the season as the 3rd string QB behind Braxton Miller and J. T. Barrett, Cardale Jones was elevated to the backup role after Miller suffered a season-ending injury before the 2014 season started. He became the starter after Barrett suffered a broken ankle in the final game of the regular season against the Michigan Wolverines.
“I’m not leaving,” Barrett told SI.com. “I don’t think Braxton is leaving. I don’t think Cardale is leaving. That’s being honest. With that, I mean, it’s just competition. It’s part of football. It’s what we’re about to do.”
Jones went on to win the Big Ten Championship game in a 59-0 rout of Wisconsin in his first ever start. He would then beat No. 1 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl to advance the Buckeyes to the National Championship game.
