Ohio State defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones has announced he will be returning to the Buckeyes for the 2018 season.

Jones posted on Twitter that it was his dream to play in the NFL and in order to best achieve that goal, he has decided to forgo his draft eligibility.

Jones joins running back Mike Weber and wide receiver Parris Campbell as returners for Ohio State next year.

Cornerback Denzel Ward, defensive end Sam Hubbard and linebacker Jerome Baker all announced they would be leaving early for the NFL Draft.
