Source? I hope he and his coaches do everything possible to put him in the best chance to succeed. I heard he has quick feet...and he definitely has size. I'm clueless but I thought I saw him struggle a lot in a couple games. Is he in the right position? I don't know...I'm clueless. This is a BIG deal for the 2022 Buckeyes. I know CJ Stroud is happy about it. He'll be a first rounder in the '23 draft.

Source? Line looks rock solid for 2022 Great news! Let's show him some Orlando Pace tape! Wooooooo!!!!! Go Bucks!!! This kid has so much potential. meh.. that’s huge

Breaking News: Dawand Jones will be returning for his senior year at Ohio State. — Dawand Jones (@dawandj79) January 17, 2022 The Indianapolis native earned second-team All-Big Ten honors from the media and third-team All-Big Ten distinction from the conference coaches during the 2021 season. Jones earned the starting right tackle job in the preseason, which led to Nicholas Petit-Frere moving from right tackle to left tackle and three-year starting left tackle Thayer Munford moving to left guard in order to make room for Jones in the lineup. With Jones at right tackle, Ohio State’s offense led the nation in both points per game (45.7) and yards per game (561.2) during the 2021 season, while its 17 sacks allowed were tied for the 14th-fewest in the country. Jones is one of three returning starters on Ohio State’s offensive line for the 2022 season, along with Paris Johnson Jr. – who’s expected to move from right guard to left tackle – and center Luke Wypler. Matt Jones and Donovan Jackson are the leading candidates to start at guard.
