Jones is ranked by 247Composite as the nation's No. 2 offensive guard and No. 47 prospect overall.
Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville Top100 offensive lineman Marcelys Jones is a Buckeye.
"Just verbal committed to Ohio State," Jones tweeted.
247Sports has also confirmed the news with a source close to the situation.
The 6-foot-5, 325-pound Jones is the first pledge for the Buckeyes in the class-of-2014. He is ranked by 247Composite as the nation's No. 2 offensive guard and No. 47 prospect overall.
The Glenville program has typically been good to Ohio State over the years, sending over several talents including Ted Ginn Jr., Christian Bryant, Marcus Hall and Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. The Buckeyes are currently in good shape to land a couple more Tarblooders standouts in senior four-star athlete Christopher Worley and blue-chip junior athlete Marshon Lattimore.
Besides Ohio State, Jones had an early offer from Indiana and was hearing from many of the nation's top programs from coast to coast.
