The last few days have been a bit unsettling for Ohio State recruiting fans, and maybe even moreso for recruitniks on Eleven Warriors with the rumblings that prodigal son Demetrius Knox, who committed to the Buckeyes in July, was considering taking official visits to Texas (this weekend) and UCLA (next weekend.) Knox was previously committed to Texas but re-opened his recruitment late last spring and when it came time to make his final choice it was a close battle betwen the Buckeyes and the Bruins. 

Today, Urban Meyer, Tom Herman and Ed Warinner all made a visit to Fort Worth and spoke to Knox during their in-home visit. Following the visit, Herman took to Twitter to give his appraisal of how things shook out.

It remains to be seen if Knox will make any more visits, but it's difficult to argue that Tom Herman won Twitter today. Ohio State's wide receivers coach Zach Smith obviously agrees.

That sequence may seriously be one of the saddest sequences I have seen in a movie. I mean, every time I watch it, for some reason my vision gets all blurry.

Just as I said on another topic post, UFM always seems to have every situation under control, as much as possible. That in-home visit was pulled out at the exact time necessary to hopefully secure the commitment.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

This gif cuts off early and it's kind of frustrating.

The books are much better than the series imo just from small details. But still love the series on tv.

I hope I am wrong but if Meechy flips, this hashtag has the opportunity to become the #karma for OSU.  Hopefully we don't have to worry about that though.
