Cardale Jones has had a whirlwind ride to fame and success, going from third-string quarterback to starter on a national championship team over the course of the 2014 season and then having to fight for playing time along side J.T. Barrett in 2015.
In a recent first person piece written for Sports Illustrated, Jones talks about how he has kept his focus on football throughout the ups and downs, and that includes making it very hard for people to get in contact with him.
I've been trying to stay low-key. I've changed my phone number three times since we won the 2014 national title.
Jones also mentions in the essay that although he remembers fellow Cleveland native Ted Ginn Jr.’s draft party as a moment that crystallized his dreams of playing in the NFL, he will be watching the draft from his Columbus apartment inbetween workouts.
