    Ohio State Football 2018 Freshman Report: OL Matthew Jones


    Matthew Jones came to Ohio State from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, New York. This is the same school that sent Curtis Samuel to Ohio State as well. Jones signed with OSU over offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Penn State, Michigan, and dozens of others. He was ranked the No. 1 center in the nation and the No. 68 player in the 2018 class overall. At one point, he was also ranked the No. 3 defensive tackle in the nation.

    2018 Season

    Matthew Jones enrolled early, which allowed him to get acclimated in the weight room and on the practice field.

    With an expected future at center, Jones was at the back end of the depth chart in the spring while the Buckeyes looked for a replacement for Billy Price.

    Fifth-year senior Brady Taylor, redshirt freshman Josh Myers, and fourth-year junior Matthew Burrell were all taking reps in the spring. Jones got some snaps here and there, but also did a lot of snapping work on his own.

    After spring ball, Burrell transferred, Taylor could never get healthy enough to play, and Myers was still a bit too raw to be given the job. All-American guard Michael Jordan was moved over in the summer and won the job.

    Jones did not see any game action in 2018 and redshirted.


    Re: Jones did not see any game action in 2018 and redshirted.

    At this point he must be pretty low on the depth chart, he could have played in 4 games and still redshirted.

    Looks like Matt Jones hurt a knee today against Maryland. Hope it's minor.
