Ohio State has added an offensive guard, who will bring experience and leadership to the line.
Senior Jonah Jackson has decided to transfer from Rutgers to OSU.
"Rutgers didn’t have my degree at the time, so I wanted to see what else was out there for me academically. And athletically, I just wanted to see what else the world had to offer," he told NJ.com.
What the Buckeyes had to offer was the chance to start. Malcolm Pridgeon and Demetrius Knox have graduated, while Michael Jordan declared for the NFL draft.
Josh Myers is expected to take over for Jordan at center, but Jackson can play any of the three interior positions up front. He had five starts at center during the 2017 campaign, and made 11 starts at right guard in 2018.
Jackson was the only non-senior captain for Rutgers last year. He was also an honorable mention All-Big Ten player.
The Media, Pennsylvania native has one year of eligibility remaining, and as a grad transfer, can play immediately.
