Cleveland Glenville has produced dozens of Division I prospects over the last decade, and Marcelys Jones should be another.
The 2014 two-way lineman competed at Ohio State’s Friday Night Lights, and he is hoping it will bring him closer to his first offer.
“The camp was great, a lot of competition,” Jones said.”I’m working hard trying to get this O-State offer.”
Jones spent time with a few members of the coaching staff at the event.
“I talked to a lot of coaches when we started 1-on-1s,” he said. “I sat down and talked to [Urban] Meyer and talked to the offensive line coach [Ed Warriner] and ate with him.”
Several Glenville graduates have played for Ohio State, and the 6-foot-4, 325-pound lineman said there is “nothing like being a Buckeye.”
“I’m still open, but being from Cleveland, Ohio, raised in Ohio, there’s nothing like playing for your own native team,” he said. “The pipeline (from Glenville) is still in. I just want to hold my options and see what’s going to happen.”
