Dre’Mont Jones was already one of Ohio State’s best players entering this year’s spring practices.
According to his head coach and defensive coordinator, he’s even better now.
"Dre’Mont Jones has been elite," Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said on last week’s Big Ten spring teleconference. "Even better than he was last year."
Following Saturday’s spring game, Meyer took that praise even further.
"The guy that has probably had the best spring of anybody on our team this spring is Dre’Mont Jones," Meyer said. "He was outstanding this spring."
Coming off of his redshirt sophomore season last year, Jones was widely expected to enter the 2018 NFL draft, for which he was projected to be an early-round pick.
