The leader of the Tarblooder Nation, Ted Ginn Sr., will get his chance to talk to national championship quarterback and Ginn Academy alum Cardale Jones tonight about his decision to go pro. That decision must be made by Jan. 15th.
Jones is a third-string quarterback that became a national star after being forced into duty as Ohio State’s starting signal caller and beating Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, beating No. 1 ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and then leading the Buckeyes to the first-ever College Football National Championship.
Now, Jones must quickly decide his immediate plans for the future – return to OSU or declare himself eligible for the 2015 NFL Draft.
The day after the championship tilt, Jones sat down with the media and told them, “I’m not ready for that level yet.”
But, a lot can change in a few days.
Ginn has seen quite a few Tarblooders enter the ranks of the NFL. Ginn has the ear of Jones and his influence could play a big factor on that decision.
Ginn recently discussed Jones’ impending decision with WKYC and USATODAYhss.com/Cleveland and how the star quarterback’s current situation – no matter what he decides – has a positive impact on many in his hometown.
