Jones, a 22-year-old quarterback that won the Big Ten title, Sugar Bowl and College Football National Championship, hinted at possibly leaving Columbus after three starts, and being embroiled in a potential three-way competition with Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett.
In his three starts against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon, Jones passed for 752 yards, three five touchdowns and two interceptions.
In returning to a loaded Buckeyes team, Jones has the chance to play a key role in helping Ohio State repeat and claim their ninth title.
