Check out some of what Nathan Baird of wrote about how Indiana native Dawand Jones gave up basketball to play football at Ohio State.

He slept with a basketball, this no-so-little boy who dreamed of one day gliding up and down the court in the NBA.

That child still lives inside Dawand Jones. The most noticeable trait about Ohio State football’s starting right tackle remains his immense size. Anyone who gets to know the 6-8, 360-pound Jones better than that quickly learns how intensely his passion for basketball burns.

So intensely, actually, that Jones said he asked his Ohio State coaches if he could pursue some role with the Buckeyes basketball team. He believed he could hang, having passed up Mid-American Conference basketball offers to pursue football. The time commitment necessary for football, however, always made those basketball dreams unrealistic.

Within the last year, Jones officially hung up his sneakers. No press release necessary. The only man who needed to receive the message was the one sending it — the man now considered one of the best tackles in the country.

Jones left Indianapolis in 2019 as a raw football project. He returns to his home state to play Indiana on Saturday as a rising NFL prospect. To make the transition, Jones let one dream die so he could fully devote himself to his promising reality.

“I just had to take my business from basketball and push it to football and make that dream the same dream,” Jones said. “I used to say I wanted the NBA. So I just switched that to the NFL. All that’s changed. I just let it go out the window.”

They call Jones “Big Thanos” after the giant villain from Marvel’s Avengers. Deanna Jones calls her son by his middle name, Valdez. Too many other Dawands in the family.

Hers measured an unremarkable eight pounds, one ounce and 21 inches at birth. Soon after, though, her doctor said this toddler was “off the chart” for expected growth.

Men’s size 10 shoes at age 10, then 11 at 11, then 12 at 12. Her son’s perpetual childhood wish had been granted.

“He used to walk around the house and say, ‘I hope when I grow up I’m tall like a basketball player,’” Deanna Jones said. “I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, I hope you don’t.’ Before you knew it, at 12 years old he was 6 feet tall.”
