Ohio State Football Recruiting: Michigan State hosts Jamarco Jones

2014 four-star Chicago offensive tackle Jamarco Jones is one of the top recruits in the nation, and the elite offensive lineman is being recruited as hard as anyone in the Midwest reason. Jones is taking a lot of visits in early April, and he will visit the Michigan State Spartans today after taking a trip to check out the in-state rival Michigan Wolverines. Prior to the Michigan visit, Jones checked out the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Wednesday. On Monday, the Ohio State Buckeyes will host Jamarco Jones.

One of the top three recruits in the state of Illinois, Jones is high on the Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan Wolverines, Northwestern Wildcats, Florida Gators, Michigan State Spartans, Oklahoma Sooners, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Wisconsin Badgers, and Vanderbilt Commodores. Of those nine teams that Jones is taking a close look at, Ohio State is in the best position to land Jones.

Today’s visit to Michigan State is a big one early in Jones’s recruitment, because it will allow him to match that visit with the other visits he is taking. He likes all of the schools in the Midwest he is taking trips to this week, so this is a chance for those schools to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

Jamarco Jones has the offers to prove his terrific ranking at 55th in our FanSided150. He also has gained offers from the Virginia Cavaliers, UCLA Bruins, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Maryland Terrapins, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Florida State Seminoles, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, California Golden Bears, Syracuse Orange, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Tennessee Volunteers, Purdue Boilermakers, Iowa Hawkeyes, Mississippi Rebels, Indiana Hoosiers, Illinois Fighting Illini, Arizona State Sun Devils, and Arkansas Razorbacks.

That’s definitely a huge list of offers, and the 6’5″, 290 pound tackle is definitely among the five best players at his position in the 2014 recruiting class.
