Rutgers' team captain Jonah Jackson, a graduate transfer at the offensive line position, is reportedly considering several major programs.

247Sports is reporting that Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound offensive guard, will be visiting Ohio State this week.

Jackson is also considering: Oklahoma, Penn State, Virginia, Texas, Pitt, Iowa and Maryland.

Bobby Deren of 247Sports is reporting the news.

Jackson was a junior captain for Rutgers in 2018.

The offensive lineman started at both center and right guard for the Scarlet Knights during the 2017 season and played exclusively at RG in 2018.

Eleven Warriors believes Ohio State could be a natural fit:

Considering Ohio State lost both starting guards – Demetrius Knox and Malcolm Pridgeon – to graduation and starting center Michael Jordan to the NFL, Jackson would be a natural fit.

Josh Myers is slated to get the first crack at center, and Wyatt Davis will start at one of the guard spots. But at the other guard position, there aren't an abundance of options. Branden Bowen, Gavin Cupp and Matthew Jones are the most likely to step into the starting role, though Jackson could step in and start if the Buckeyes land him.

Rutgers is coming off a 1-11 season. Jackson would be one of dozens of major college football players who have explored big transfers this offseason. Stay tuned.
