Yes.

As you may conclude from the other answer, the Ohio filing requirement is wishy washy. The simple answer is he does not need to file a state return if his total income  was less than $10,850. Otherwise, he needs to file, even though the income was earned out of state.. Ohio will give him a credit, or partial credit, for any tax paid to Illinois.

If he is your dependent, he must file a city return for the city you live in. Even if he isn't your dependent, he must file a city return for the city of his permanent residence. There is no minimum income filing requirement for most Ohio cities, although some (most) exempt people under 18.

If his Ohio adjusted gross income (Ohio IT 1040, line 3) is less than or equal to 0 (zero) than he does not have to file a return.

He may need to fill out an Exemption form for the city.  What city did he live in during the year?
