After the Thursday press conference when Cardale Jones announced his decision to stay at Ohio State and complete his education, some athletes took to Twitter to express their opinions.
Jones will return to Ohio State to compete with Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett for the starting quarterback job.
Jones said his education will take him further in life than football will and that he wants to be a financial planner after his football career is finished.
Jones exclusively spoke with Fox 8 on Wednesday before announcing the press conference being held on Thursday.
Moral of the story: Stay in school kids…they can’t take your degree away from you

Staying in school is life changing? Or the same thing you just did… Maybe that you appreciate school now could be the life change…

You can always go back and get a degree. Millions of NFL dollars waits on nobody. #justsaying
