Buckeyes' Cardale Jones makes big debut Saturday

The Ohio State Buckeyes will turn to former Glenville quarterback Cardale Jones.

The Buckeyes have been torched with injuries at the quarterback position. Before the regular season they lost Braxton Miller for the season and was forced to play J.T Barrett who started off slow but with some growing pains he put on quite a season and was in the running for the Heisman finalist this year, until he went down last week against Michigan, Barrett fractured his ankle.

In comes Cardale Jones, he completed 2 passes for 7 yards and rushed for 18 yards on 2 carries. The Buckeyes went on to win the game despite losing Barrett. So who is Cardale Jones?

Jones led Glenville to a 24-3 record as the starting quarterback and passed for 1,689 yards and 22 touchdowns his senior year in 2011. His Junior year he threw for 2,168 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Jones red-shirted in 2012. In 2013 Jones had 39 plays from scrimmage in games against Florida A&M, Penn State and Purdue.

Jones will make his first collegiate start this Saturday against Wisconsin.
