03/16/2013 - 2013 Ohio State Pro Day: Jake Stoneburner shows off skills at Ohio State pro day...Jake Stoneburner, TE (6-4 1/8, 249 pounds) - He had a very good workout, showing off his catching skills with real smooth hands. Stoneburner posted 40 times of 4.53 and 4.56. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

03/11/2013 - 2013 Ohio State Pro Day: Representatives from 28 NFL teams were on hand in Columbus, Ohio to watch draft-eligible former Buckeyes work out at their Pro Day. Among the top brass there were Pittsburgh Steelers' GM Kevin Colbert and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and Minnesota Vikings GM While the two players ranked highest on NFLDraftScout.com's board - defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins and offensive tackle Reid Fragel - elected to sit on their results from the combine, tight end Jake Stoneburner used the opportunity to demonstrate considerably better athleticism than he'd shown in Indianapolis.

The 6-3 (3/8), 252-pound Stoneburner shaved a tenth of a second off of his 40-yard dash results from the combine, clocking in at an unofficial 4.52 seconds. He also caught the ball cleanly, showing body control and the burst to catch up to some deep throws from former Ohio State Heisman winner Troy Smith, who volunteered to throw at the workout. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/11/2012 - LOOKING GOOD: Senior TE/WR Jake Stoneburner had a touchdown catch against Central Florida, the tenth scoring reception of his career. Stoneburner has been used as a tight end, wide receiver, and lined up in the slot or as an H-back this year. "I don't really know what my role is for sure," Stoneburner said. "They have me listed as a starting wide receiver, but they have put me in at tight end and I've played a little bit of fullback. I guess they just want to use me in different ways. I'm fine with that." - The Sports Xchange

08/13/2012 - Jake Stoneburner arrived at Ohio State as a tall, large wide receiver who was switched to tight end. Now it appears he will leave Ohio State in reverse fashion. Although Stoneburner still hasn't been cleared from probation by coach Urban Meyer after an offseason arrest, it's obvious this 6-foot-5, 245-pound senior weighs heavily in the Buckeyes' offensive plans. "We've now officially moved him; he's now out with the receivers," Meyer said yesterday. Meyer said Stoneburner now meets with the wide receivers, in part to add some juice to that group, and also because of the play of Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett at tight end. "He'll practice at times (as a tight end), but we have two very good tight ends in Heuerman and Vannett," Meyer said. Stoneburner, unavailable for comment yesterday, won't be a deep threat. Meyer compared him to New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who lined up in many places when he played for Meyer at Florida. "He's going to be our Hernandez-type guy, a guy that can do some things," Meyer said. - Tim May, The Columbus Dispatch

08/09/2012 - Top-five Ohio State prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. TE Jake Stoneburner...With the new-look offense this season in Columbus, scouts are eager to see if Stoneburner will be used in a similar fashion as Aaron Hernandez was under Meyer at Florida. Stoneburner was one of the top tight-end recruits out of high school, even receiving an offer from Meyer's Gators, but decided to stay close to home in Columbus. After redshirting in 2008, Stoneburner spent his freshman season as Jake Ballard's backup. He was a part-time starter in 2010 and set career bests with 21 catches for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His stats declined last season as a junior, but he tied for the team lead with 14 grabs and set a personal best with seven scores. Stoneburner has a tall, athletic frame with a narrow build and lean torso, looking more like a bulky receiver than traditional tight end. He has good straight-line speed and is a nice catch-and-run player, but needs to stay balanced in and out of his breaks. Although he gives top effort as a blocker, Stoneburner isn't overpowering and tends to be too heavy-handed, leading to holding calls. He isn't overly aggressive in tight coverage and can be too easily overmatched physically by defenders in coverage. Stoneburner has nice focus, but only good, not great, hands with an underwhelming 37 combined catches in 36 career games. He was suspended this summer for a violation of team rules, but shouldn't miss any playing time. Although he is an intriuging receiving option, Stoneburner isn't the top-100 prospect that many are making him out to be and projects as more of a third-day selection. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/26/2012 - Q. A question about Jake Stoneburner. I noticed the charges were dropped against him. Has any decision been made as far as reinstating him to the team? And Jack Mewhort as well? COACH MEYER: They're not reinstated yet. They're actively working out. They have to fulfill their penance or obligation that we've asked them to do. Obviously the kind of people that they are, the families they're from, we did take their scholarships. They've had to pay for their summer school. Very expensive mistake. They're doing what they are supposed to do. Monitoring it closely. And that decision won't be made until we get to training camp. But as of now they'll be reporting to training camp a week from Friday. - Big Ten football/Media day transcripts

07/20/2012 - 2012 ROTARY LOMBARDI AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Jake Stoneburner, TE, Ohio State, has been selected to the Preseason Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented the nation's top college lineman or linebacker each year by The Rotary Club of Houston. Stoneburner tied for the team lead last season with 14 receptions, half of which went for touchdowns, and he earned honorable mention all-Big Ten Conference honors by the league's head coaches and media. His seven touchdown receptions ranked fourth nationally among tight ends. He caught 21 passes for 221 yards as a sophomore in 2010. He enters his senior season with career totals of 37 receptions for 445 yards and nine touchdowns. - Ohio State football

07/11/2012 - The suspensions of Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort have not cost them their spots on Ohio State's depth chart. Stoneburner (tight end) and Mewhort (left tackle) were listed as projected starters when Ohio State released and updated its depth chart on Wednesday. The pair of projected starters were suspended from the team on June 2 and stripped of their scholarships for the summer quarter when they were charged with obstructing official business. They eventually pled guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. Coach Urban Meyer said Stoneburner and Mewhort would remain suspended from team activities "until certain stipulations are met." While in Geneva last week for a free football camp at SPIRE Institute, Meyer said he talks with Stoneburner and Mewhort "every week," but didn't divulge any details about their status with the team. Their appearance on the depth chart suggests the matter is not considered a major long-term issue. - John Kampf, MorningJournal.com

07/10/2012 - 2012 JOHN MACKEY AWARD PRESEASON WATCHLIST: Jake Stoneburner, Ohio State, has been selected to the 2012 preseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, which is presented annually to college football's best tight end. Big, fast and strong, and with outstanding pass-catching abilities, Stoneburner is a veteran of 36 games played and 15 starts at tight end. He enters his senior season with career totals of 37 receptions for 445 yards and nine touchdowns. Stoneburner tied for the team lead last season with 14 receptions, half of which went for touchdowns, and he earned honorable mention all-Big Ten Conference honors by the league's head coaches and media. His seven touchdown receptions ranked fourth nationally among tight ends. He caught 21 passes for 221 yards as a sophomore in 2010. - Ohio State football

06/18/2012 - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer removed the athletic scholarships of tight end Jake Stoneburner and offensive tackle Jack Mewhort, ESPN.com reported Saturday. Stoneburner is the No. 3-rated tight end prospect for 2013 by NFLDraftScout.com, while Mewhort is rated as the 10th-best guard in the '14 class. The players, who are seniors, were disciplined after they settled court cases from a June 2 incident. Both players were charged with obstructing official business after police in Delaware, Ohio, said they urinated on a building and fled when confronted by officers. They pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct Friday. Both players, however, will have opportunities to work their way back on scholarship and return to the team after the summer. "We are disappointed with the decisions made recently by two of our football players," Meyer said in a statement. "Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort will each be removed from athletic scholarship beginning with the summer term, and they will continue to be suspended from team activities until stipulations are successfully met." Stoneburner and Mewhort, who are projected starters this season, are enrolled in summer classes but have to pay their own tuition during the term. They are allowed to work out at the team's facility during the summer but not with their teammates. - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange

06/04/2012 - Urban Meyer struggled with players getting into trouble off the field during his tenure at the University of Florida. Before he's coached his first game for the Ohio State Buckeyes, he'll have to deal with news that two of his athletes, including starting tight end Jake Stoneburner, have made similarly poor decisions that have led to their arrests. According to multiple reports, Stoneburner, a redshirt senior, and junior left tackle Jack Mewhort, were arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of obstructing official business in the early morning hours Saturday. Doug Lesmerises of The Cleveland Plain-Dealer cites two television stations (Channel 4, 10 of Columbus, Ohio) as reporting that both athletes were arrested after being caught urinating outside of a restaurant at approximately 2:30 am. The players, according to the reports, initially ran and hid when spotted. Despite catching just 14 passes a season ago, Stoneburner is expected to be one of the Buckeyes' primary pass-catchers in 2012. As an indication of his importance to Ohio State's passing attack, half of Stoneburner's catches a year ago went for touchdowns, which led the team. For his efforts Stoneburner was voted to the honorable mention All Big Ten team by league coaches. The 6-5, 245 pounder is currently rated as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3 senior tight end prospect for the 2013 NFL draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

06/03/2012 - Two Ohio State football players have been arrested by police in a central Ohio village on a charge of obstructing official business. Senior tight end Jake Stoneburner and offensive lineman Jack Mewhort were arrested at about 2:30 a.m. by the Shawnee Hills police. No details were immediately available on the misdemeanor counts against the two. WBNS-TV in Columbus reports that a third man, Austin Barnard, also was charged. He is not affiliated with the football program. The Delaware County Sheriff's Office told the TV station that the three were released after posting $2,000 bond. Stoneburner, a 22-year-old Dublin native, caught 14 passes last season, seven for touchdowns. Mewhort is a junior from Toledo. A message was left at Ohio State's athletic department. - AP Sports
