Rutgers graduate transfer offensive lineman Jonah Jackson will see his old teammates at his next destination. He's staying in the Big Ten and heading to Ohio State to finish off his college career.

Jackson confirmed his commitment on Twitter moments ago. Lettermen Row was the first to report it was a done deal.

Jackson chose the Buckeyes over Oklahoma. An honorable mention All-Big Ten performer and captain when he was at Rutgers, he visited OSU last month before making the call.

"#GoBucks O-H!" read Jackson's Twitter announcement.

Jackson started 11 games at right guard for the Scarlet Knights last season as a redshirt junior. He was one of the bright spots in a miserable 1-11 season.

In 2017, Jackson appeared in six contests and made five starts at center. He played in 12 games in 2016, seeing action at right guard and on special teams.

His versatility and experience should come in quite handy for an Ohio State team that is looking to replace multiple starters on the offensive line. Left tackle Thayer Munford is the only full-time starter returning, though the unit has several players who contributed last season.

Ohio State will open up its 2019 campaign against Florida Atlantic on August 31. Jackson will face his former program in New Jersey on November 16.
