Ohio State commit considering the Cats?

marcelys-jones

Meet Marcelys Jones, a four-star 2014 offensive guard from Cleveland, Ohio who is currently committed to Ohio State. At 6’5″, 325 lbs., Jones is ranked the 92nd best overall recruit in the 2014 class and the third best player in the state of Ohio by 24/7 Sports.

Jones committed to Ohio State on December 25th, but may be having second thoughts. This morning, Jones picked up an offer from Kentucky, and tweeted this a few hours later:

“Just because you committed don’t mean anything until you sign that letter that’s were most people get lost at.”

Some of the other schools who have offered him: Alabama, Florida State, Maryland, Illinois, Louisville, Michigan State and UCLA.

Watch him work:

    Looks like a mean kid. But are highschool officials that bad that they dont know when a kid slings another kid to the ground that is an obvious hold. That happened at leat a dozen times in that video. By the way at the end of the video he kicks a field goal lol, pretty funny.

    Viewing this site on iPhone 4S, every time I load the main page the video player pops up and full screens a KHSAA game and one other video. Havent tried from a desktop or another phone – Anyone else getting this or just me?

    J. Rowland ie UK’s rival rep is report that the young man has reached out to UK twice within the last 24 hrs and confirmed with him thru twitter that there is real interest in UK.

    What is the point of a commitment in football? Looks like the school takes all the risk of having to hold a scholarship for the committed kid and the kid takes no risk. Plus even after the commitment schools are still recruiting you. It’s not this bad in basketball is it?

    1) They wait until Justin Rowland at Rivals takes the time to interview kids and speak to actual sources in the football program. He shares his info in HOB and then it finds its way on here within an hour. I wouldn’t have a problem with it if Tyler and Drew would just admit where they get their information from instead of plagiarizing someone else’s work.

      9 – What info did we “plagiarize”? I follow the kid on Twitter and saw that he picked up an offer from Kentucky this morning. Justin does great work, and we are always happy to cite his stuff.

    kid is legit, and would be worth holding a scholly for until he officially signs elsewhere. 16 or 17 years old, 6’5 325, and the only time i saw him on the ground was due to a pancake block. Barring a career ending injury, this kid will play on Sundays for a long time.. WRITE IT DOWN.

    Well that’s a high character feller that says “just because you committed don’t mean anything”. Well then, why the hell did you bother to commit until you thought it through? Give your dam word and stick to it. On a side note, I told my ex wife commitment don’t mean anything after she caught me with a stripper.

    Typical Glenville recruit, will take all his visits and string people along but will end up at Ohio State.

    For Kentucky to be even on this kid’s mind is incredible.
    This is unreal, where hasn’t Stoops been?
    Apparently Kentucky football has been sleep walking for sixty years. Can’t wait for Stoops to get his team on the field and start kicking some SEC tail. Go Cats!!!
