CLEVES, Ohio -- When it is time to make a decision, Jamarco Jones (Chicago/De La Salle) will be taking into account more than just football.

His most recent visit, to Ohio State earlier this month, gave him an idea of what life would be like in Columbus if he pledged to the Buckeyes in August, the month he plans to make a commitment.

“This was a chance to see what it’s like outside of football season and get to see what it’s like to be around the players,” said Jones, who was making his fourth visit to Ohio State. “The [players] love it there pretty much. Nobody had anything bad to say about it. And I had conversations about the [recruiting] process with the players. They said you got to pick what school is best for you and what’s most comfortable. It was really helpful.”
