Rutgers’ best offensive lineman is officially headed to Ohio State.
Monday evening, Jonah Jackson announced via Twitter that he’ll be finishing his college football career in Columbus. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be immediately eligible to play in 2019.
Jackson confirmed the move with Letterman Row before making the announcement on Twitter. He’ll have one year of eligibility remaining.

Jackson was a team captain for Rutgers in 2018, starting in 11 games in 2018 at right guard. He also has experience at center, a position he played in 2017.
He was an All-B1G honorable mention last fall.
Jackson’s departure from Piscataway is a huge loss for Chris Ash as he hopes to right the ship entering his fourth season with Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights finished the 2018 season 1-11 and were winless in B1G play. The year was quite different for Ohio State, which won the B1G and earned a Rose Bowl victory to end with a 13-1 record.
Jackson is expected to be in the mix immediately for a starting spot along Ohio State’s offensive line.
