That appears to have worked out.
Jones received an offer from Ohio State in the final weeks after his last visit to Columbus, and Wednesday morning the quarterback prospect picked Ohio State.
According to multiple reports, Jones (6-5, 230) will not enroll immediately with OSU, however.
Stay tuned for more on this prospect as the day goes on.
In other news, Ohio State missed on Jones' teammate, offensive lineman Aundrey Walker, who chose USC.
Two commitments from wideouts went against OSU this morning as Sunshine State wideout Ja'Juan Story, who visited OSU late, stayed with Florida, while Baltimore wideout Darius Jennings chose Virginia.
The Buckeyes did let a signed letter of intent from Pittsburgh linebacker Ejuan Price - who had wavered in the final days - and continue to await the announcement of five-star linebacker Curtis Grant this afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
