It was an interesting weekend for a couple of Buckeye commits, both on the gridiron and basketball court, as they were provided the chance to showcase their talent.
The 2013 edition of the Ohio North-South Classic high school football all-star game turned out to be a thrilling finish when it was all said and done. '13 ATH Gareon Conley, who committed to Ohio State last November, caught three touchdowns (36, 28 and 11 yards) to help his team, the North, defeat the South, 33-27. The North came into the 68th annual game with a 39-25-3 advantage in which, reportedly, is the longest-running continuously played high school football all-star game in the country.
The Classic, sponsored by the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association and first played in 1946, was played in Southwest Ohio for the first time after previously being played in Canton and Columbus. Conley was recruited as one of the best cornerbacks in the country, but with this game, along with his other stats from his high school career, Conley may be looked as a dual-threat come fall. '13 ATH Darron Lee and '13 ATH/S Christopher Worley also put in solid performances for their respective sides as Lee pitched in 72 yards on the ground, had 48 yards receiving and also added an interception on the defensive side of the ball. Worley finished the game with six tackles, which was enough to lead his team. In all, the future Buckeyes stood out among the crowd in a game full of future division one athletes.
Report: Texas coaches thought 2014 OG Demetrius Knox ‘was joking’ when he told them he was decommitting, who could take Knox’s spot in Longhorns’ recruiting class? (Dallas News)
Five players, including blue-chippers Ricky Seals Jones, a wide receiver from Sealy, and Fort Worth Arlington Heights defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson, decommitted from Texas last year, causing head coach Mack Brown to institute a no-visit policy for Longhorns commits.
Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal offensive tackle Demetrius Knox was the first Class of 2014 prospect to decommit from Texas earlier this month and, according to ESPN’s HornsNation, the Longhorns coaches didn’t believe Knox at first when informed that he was decomitting.
“The coaches were very surprised. They kind of thought I was joking at first,” Knox told HornsNation. “I didn’t want to put it on social media or talk to anybody until they felt it was right to put it out there. They said they could keep me on their commit list until I openly told the public I was going to take visits somewhere else. I told them it was best to take me off.”
