Keandre Jones enters NCAA transfer portal

Ohio State linebacker Keandre Jones has reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Jones, a four-star recruit out of Maryland from the class of 2016 hasn’t seen a lot of playing time during his three years with the Buckeyes and is looking for an opportunity.

During the 2018 season, Jones recorded 10 tackles, one sack and a blocked kick in 12 games as a reserve.

In his three years at Ohio State, he has 29 total tackles in 32 games.

Heading into 2019, he was projected to once again be a backup behind Malik Harrison at the outside linebacker and was likely frustrated because he hasn’t had the opportunity to start.

It’s unclear what his options are or if he has opportunities elsewhere in college football.

He didn’t declare for the 2019 NFL Draft because with his lack of playing time, he likely wouldn’t have been selected or even signed as an undrafted free agent.

If Jones does transfer, he’ll join Tate Martell as Buckeyes who have left the program this offseason.

Martell transferred to Miami (FL) on Wednesday after being a backup quarterback the previous two seasons and likely being a backup to Justin Fields for the 2019 season if Fields is eligible to play.
