    QB CARDALE JONES (2012-15)
    Jones is the best third-string quarterback in college football history. He led the Buckeyes on their glorious three-game run against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon to win the national championship in 2014, which started with a 257-yard, three-touchdown performance in a 59-0 rout of the Badgers.

    To the surprise of many, Jones returned to the team for the 2015 season. He started the first five games of the season before J.T. Barrett took over for the rest of the year.

    Jones was drafted by the Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. He made his only regular-season NFL game appearance that year. While he is still attempting to continue his professional football career, he was recently released by the CFL’s Edmonton Elks after being signed to replace Barrett.

    At Glenville, Jones was a third-team All-Ohioan and passed for 2,168 yards and 18 touchdowns. He spent one year at Fork Union Military Academy in 2011, where he was roommates with Michael Thomas, before joining the Buckeyes in 2012.

    CARDALE JONES (2013-15)
    166/269 (61.7%), 2,322 yards, 15 touchdowns, seven interceptions; 153 carries, 617 yards, four touchdowns

    When J.T. Barrett fractured his right ankle against Michigan in 2014, Jones made the most of the opportunity. The Glenville product led the Buckeyes to three straight wins over Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon to win the national championship in the inaugural College Football Playoff, becoming an Ohio State legend in the process.

    He split time with Barrett during the 2015 season before declaring for the NFL Draft following his junior campaign.
