Ohio State LB Joshua Perry Defends Cardale Jones From Backlash Following NCAA Rant

Earlier today, Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones blasted the NCAA on Twitter, claiming the organization exploits student-athletes. 

Jones' opinion drew a fair share of praise, but also quite a bit of backlash as well. His Ohio State teammate Joshua Perry also took to Twitter and fired off a long slew of tweets supporting Jones and expounding upon his argument.
