Dre’Mont Jones Opens Up On His Commitment To The State Of Ohio

DreMont Jones

The recent recruitment exercise of Ohio State continues today after Dre'Mont Jones, a defensive end from St. Ignatius, Cleveland (OH), committed himself to the State of Ohio coming second after Nick Conner, a linebacker of Scioto Dublin (OH), signed up yesterday. Dre'Monte Jones made the commitment to Larry Johnson, the defensive line coach of Ohio State even in absence of Urban Meyer today. Johnson, together with other coaches of Buckeye congratulated Jones on his commitment to the State of Ohio at Woody Hayes Athletic Center where they camped today.

Why Dre'Monte Jones Committed to Ohio State

Jones said that the decision to commit came when Coach Johnson talked of a four-year-process the team offers and after visiting the team for three times, he decided to commit. After thinking about the move for a month, when he visited today, Jones said he knew the move would end his recruitment. Another contributing factor to his commitment includes the fact that the school and the facilities charmed him and made him feel more comfortable.

Coach Larry Johnson and Jones share a strong relationship and the two expect to work together when Jones sets foot in Columbus coming summer. Dre'Monte Jones conferred that he and the coach connect strongly and they talk more about their personal lives such as football, education, and the life of high school, adding that he feels at ease talking to the coach.

Committing to Ohio a Lifetime Dream for Jones

Jones admitted he loves the school and he aspired of joining Ohio State since childhood and donning the uniform and playing really means a lot to him. Liam Eichenberg, an offensive lineman star from the class of 2016, comes from Cleveland Ignatius and Jones plans to bring him to Ohio State alongside Kyle Berger of Ignatius Grad.

Jones said that since he talks frequently with Liam, he wants him to join Ohio State like Kyle. However, Jones said he intends to make an improvement during the off-season by practicing the use of opposite hands in order to achieve a stronger stance in the left hand and better his playing skills. Finally, the current situation can only allow Dre'Mont Jones to take one official trip to Columbus later this fall.
