Cardale Jones took the responsible route this week when he declared that he would return to Ohio State instead of taking advantage of his great play for the final three games of the season and entering the NFL draft. Beating Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship, beating Alabama and then winning the National Title against Oregon is a three game run that will more than likely not happen for another OSU quarterback any time soon. But Cardale valued his education and the opportunity to compete for the starting position this coming season. He began 2014 as the third string quarterback before Braxton Miller and JT Barrett were unable to play due to injury.

Cardale led fans to believe that he was going to leave with a tweet about  a “Life Changing announcement” but then announced that he was staying. Scouts felt that he would have been picked between the 2nd and the 4th round in the upcoming NFL draft. He comes from the Cleveland Glenville system and Ted Ginn Sr. does tend to give his kids advice about getting an education and being men before seeking the money that comes with big time football. So the decision does make sense looking at his past.

He would be able to return to OSU and get a degree after completing an NFL career, but he has chosen to complete his degree now before making himself eligible. Urban Meyer was a little surprised by the decision according to reports. Cardale is willing to wait for his opportunity if he does not win the starting job in the fall of 2015.
