Demetrius Knox was one of the most prized recruits of the #Dream14 class, and as far as we know, is the first Ohio State footballer to be an active 11W member.

Knox didn't early-enroll, so he'll be joining the rest of the freshmen class on campus this weekend. Yet to play even a practice snap for Ohio State, it appears there are already people trying to dovetail onto his personal success:

Knox is a guy who has his head together, and for his part, he appears to have handled it well:

Why would anybody try to woodwork a teenager? Because people with no shame are the worst. This isn't what we're talking about in regards to "the Ohio State family."

Not cool. It's like winning the lottery and then finding cousins you didn't even know you had.

Only in this case you're still pretty much broke.

Perhaps this is an addendum to Ramzy's piece from earlier in the week: "If you try to scam season tickets off a team member..."

It's amazing and a little sad - this is an example of when six degrees of separation isn't a good thing.

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

He appears to have a good head on his shoulders, he'll be fine.  Glad he's a part of the Buckeye Family.

I JUST now realized...the little box in his name "BIG _EECH" isn't a glitchy missing text thing...it's a not-include-an-M because of TSUN thing.

I'm slow but I get there eventually.  Nice goin', _eechy!  Can't wait for you to make some pancakes for the B1G.

the box is a glitch, on twitter it's a red X, i'm not sure if it's a browser issue or a specific webpage issue but it seems to happen a lot with embedded tweets.  but you're right about the M/TSUN part

Meech, as you know there are some family members who you would rather not hear from, but thanks for being an active member on 11W - looking forward to reading about how you are killin' it in camp this summer.

Hey Meech, I upvoted you a lot, can you hook me up with tickets?

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Yeah. Me too. Wait. I already get them. Not free, but...

It's going to be hard to fit all of these helmet stickers on your helmet at the start of fall camp!

I'm a senior this year, last year of guaranteed tickets for me. Unless I change my major six times and stay in school for the next decade. I'm not opposed to it.

At my current pace I'll be a senior citizen before being a senior student, but hey, work pays my way with a B or better, so I'll take my time.

You can get alumni tickets right? With a "small donation"?

You were ok.  It's just the ones claiming to be family that we have a problem with.

I don't have them, but in this day and age, beggars actually CAN be choosers. At least they think so.

Campus area food is incredible. Freshman 15 for me was an understatement. So many delicious off-campus choices.
