Eh this one's all OSU.
You forgot that we have Brian Allen. This one's not over yet.
That order would be ok with me.
Allen was probably a factor in getting MSU into his top 4. He's been all tOSU for months now though.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Anything is possible and with him training with all the Core 6 guys that we lead for... i think it gives us a shot and that's all you can ask for.. What i think is important in the statement below is that Jones has never named a leader, it's just been perceived that o$u leads, but then again when doesn't o$u and scUM lead for every recruit they offer based on the slurpfest their writers put out there..
I found this while i was looking at info on the offer to OT Casey Tucker..
This is from Lorenz on scUM site Today regarding scUM's plan A, B and C targets for the Oline...
Jones will release his final four schools. It's believed Michigan will be in this group, but that everyone trails Ohio State right now, who is likely pitching very early playing time to him as they've struggled to recruit the offensive line position in the last couple classes. It's worth noting that Jones has never been quoted with a leader, however. I still think the Buckeyes are the best bet for his services.
Also to note, and i think that Skip has said it on here before but it says that scUM is looking to take 3 OL this cycle and they already have 2 commits for those 3 spots...
Jones HS coach said last week that he thought tOSU lead, but not by much. He was sort of debunking the myth that they're out front by a margin.
This may be nukable Rocky because its not news but thought everyone may get a kick out of these posts from the badgers 247 jamarco top 4 thread. At least they thought his twitter was trending Sparty.

If you follow Jones on twitter he had taken on an MSU vibe lately. Seems to like them. But better in this case to finish fifth than fourth.

I get that Jones to UW was always a long shot and I'm glad we can move on now. But for some reason it really chaps my ass that MSU made his top four over UW. I can't stand them getting over on us in any way shape or form. I get OSU, ND, and Mich.

Bump. Set to make verbal on June 27th.
Good pickup for OSU.
I don't see us getting him, but sure as hell would be nice if we did.
I think he set this a while ago. He's gonna visit each of his top 4 once more before deciding.
Don't count Michigan State out in this one Jamarco Jones is much more humble then most highly regarded recruits who may by into all the hype at Ohio State or Michigan. Add to that the relationship he has with all three Chicago based commits OL Chase Gianacakos OL Brian Allyen and Enoch Smith Jr being able to play with guys he has had the chance to play with during the season and get to know at camps.
I'd rather not feel this way but he will be an OSU commit really soon, the rich get richer.
On the other hand, the crystal ball shows he is 100% to osu so I guess those other three schools should be real excited to get his commit soon. Right, 247?
OSU is probably out of it now. Thanks, 247!

Just had great talks with Coach Bollman and Coach Staten! Looking forward to getting back out there this summer!!! #MSU #Spartans
Getting Jones would be so massive. It seems like a long shot, but it'd be awesome.
laconophilia is everywhere...
Is there some kind of information you have, don't need to tell us, to support this? Or is this just looking at the glass as half full? Just curious, wanting to know the context of the post.

ND just got a OT commit from Alex Bars. Not that this takes ND out of the running (or anyone other than OSU into the running) but it's info relevant.
I think major key to landing several key recruits for Michigan State like OL Jamarco Jones, DL Craig Evans, RB Chris James will be getting some of the MSU commits on campus the same time.
Since O$U already has Kyle Trout in the fold, and possibly adding Chad Mavety, we could actually get Jamarco Jones.
Jones is a Plan A recruit for OSU. He's a better prospect than any OT they've offered in 2014 ex-Damian Prince.
Don't kid yourself Urban will screw over a current recruit to get someone better in a heartbeat.
And the worse part is that he won't pull an offer from a verbal, he will oversign and then cut one of the kids before the deadline but after other teams have a full commitment list.
