OSU '14 Commit Demetrius Knox

Demetrius Knox is one of the most personable recruits in Ohio State's 2014 "The Dream" recruiting class, and we're not saying that because he was once a member of 11W. (His 11W community interview can be found HERE.)

USA Today caught up with the mauler from Texas:

Best movie of all-time is… The Vow

My can’t-miss TV show is… Vampire Diaries and The Originals

My favorite pro team is… The Lakers

You're young, Demetrius. The good news is... you won't be afflicted with these terrible tastes forever. (We kid, of course. The kid obviously has good taste because he's committed to The Ohio State University.)

It's hard to not like this kid immensely, as he appears sharp and witty in almost every interview in which he appears, and that's before you put on his highlight tape. Ohio State got a good one.

As a software engineer I would love for a big time player to major in a computer-related discipline, not sure if I've ever heard of a player doing that.

I didn't play at OSU but I played in college and I was a computer science major.  It seemed hard at the time, but looking back it was a piece of cake compared to how hard I push at work.
Edit: As you would know it's a different major than most in that you either know it or you don't by test time.  Cramming for a computer science test (at least when I was in school '99) would have done no good as you had to build to the point of the tests throughout the semester/trimester.  We didn't have to miss much class but I remember missing a class every so often and feeling like it took weeks to catch up.

Wonder when Meechy is allowed back on 11W?

Once his letter of intent is received by Ubz and crew.  (Feb 5)

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Computer Engineering is a great thing to "fall back" on. That's what I did, and I'm glad I did since my intramural sports career fizzled out.
But seriously that's awesome!

Wouldn't have guessed that. He must want to Channing all over her Tatum.

He's got his shit in a pile.  Many of the top offensive linemen these days have good stuff between the ears.  Urbz offense requires kids like Meech.

The Vow and Vampire Diaries??? Meechy has some guts to admit that. Hahaha All kidding aside, I'm really excited to see him develop. He's an intelligent and extremely athletic big man.

Knowing Meech - he's yanking everyones chain...

Maybe a future Campbell (formerly Draddy) trophy winner, like Bobby Hoying and Craig Krenzel were?

Very much looking forward to the big guy (and the entire Dream 14) doing great things, on and off the field.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.
