Cardale Jones Is Back Playing School At Ohio State, Set To Graduate This Spring

Cardale Jones has returned to Ohio State to finish up his degree, and is on pace to graduate this spring.

Jones was spotted on National Signing Day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, and told The Columbus Dispatch's Tim May that he has two classes left to finish up his degree.

"I'm here finishing up school," he said. "I've got two classes to go to get my degree, so I can graduate in the spring."

A member of Urban Meyer's first OSU recruiting class in 2012, Jones is on track to get his degree in African-American and African studies, a team spokesman said.

Early in his college career, Jones became infamous for tweeted "we ain't come to play school, classes are pointless," openly questioning why college football players have to attend class.

A few years later, it is cool to see him finishing things up. We're sure Urban Meyer appreciates the effort as well.

Jones was drafted in the fourth round by the Buffalo Bills last spring, after foregoing his final year of eligibility at Ohio State. He appeared in one game as a rookie, completing 6-of-11 passes for 96 yards, and throwing one interception.
