COLUMBUS: Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer said replenishing the depth chart on the offensive line was a priority for this recruiting cycle, and with the commitment Sunday night of Demetrius Knox — formerly committed to Texas — the Buckeyes now have four four-star linemen pledged to the 2014 class.
“I’ve been an Ohio State fan since the second grade,” Knox texted to the Dispatch after he made the announcement on Twitter.
Ranked No. 1 among guards nationally by Rivals.com, and No. 87 among overall prospects, the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Knox spent his early years in Springfield, Ohio, before his family moved to Fort Worth, Texas.
“It’s time to come home and win a national championship,” Knox texted.
He joins Jamarco Jones, Marcelys Jones and Kyle Trout in an offensive line haul that is the highlight of OSU’s 15-member class.
