    Dan Rheardon:
    "And J.J. is about 6-7, 210 and he can really run. He’s also a basketball player, and I’ll be honest -- I was a little nervous about that, but he’s a football player. He’s been extremely competitive and he’s doing everything that we needed him to do. He’s doing a great job."

    If he can put on about 20 pounds this year he could be a stud pickup with tremendous potential.

    Jerome has offers from Kansas, Miami of Ohio, and Akron. Miami (FL) is his favorite school followed by tOSU, Michigan, and Penn State.

    Jerome is a nice, long athlete with great potential. He has good awareness for a LB, but he has the frame to add some weight and become a solid DE at the next level. He has very good hands, especially for a big man (he is every bit of 6'7) which is why I won't be surprised to see him stay at LB. He gives QBs a lot of problems with screen passes and he has the speed to take INTs back for scores. On the field, he reminds me a lot of Shawn Crable in HS. Crable was a DE at Massillon, but both of them are absolutely huge and very good. Ursuline has a great coaching staff so I fully expect Jones to have a great senior season. I would not be surprised if the Buckeyes offered.

    Well, let's get on this kid. We seem to have some good options at TE right now with Reuland, Cumberland, Jake Ballard and now Jerome Jones. Maybe some other guys too once we start to really get into the process and the season starts next year, but these are some pretty nice weapons if you ask me.

    Jones is considered the #34 prospect in Ohio. For a kid his size, he is very coordinated and could be a rising star in Ohio this year.

  11. Reports from gary from bn are that he is inelligable until maybe the 9th or 10th game of the season. He will practice with the team all season tho.

    From committed to Toledo.

    I for one think he is going to be a fine football player at Toledo. You can't take 'em all, but I think he could have been a Buckeye-caliber recruit if his grades had been in better order. Good luck to Jerome!

    This is another case of a player who has tremendous potential but due to grades, major offers didn't come his to keep an eye on down the line.
