This Week in Twitter is a look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from Buckeyeland and beyond.

Ohio State held its spring commencement last Sunday, and 15 current or former football players were among the Buckeye graduates, including Aaron Cox and Taron Vincent.

Last Sunday was also Mother's Day, and some Buckeye football players gave a special shoutout to their mothers to give thanks for all that they do. 

Former Ohio State tight end and 2002 national champion Ben Hartsock reminded us how great All-American linebacker Andy Katzenmoyer was during his Buckeye career.

Another member of the 2002 national championship team, linebacker Cie Grant, concurred with Hartsock. 

Grant had some criticism, however, for former Ohio State and current Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers. 

Keeping with the theme of former Buckeyes, some Ohio State alumni tested their skills alongside Ryan Day and the Buckeyes’ coaches on a different kind of green this week.

One of the newest former Buckeyes, Chris Olave, returned home to Southern California to throw out the first pitch for the San Diego Padres. 

Another new former Buckeye, offensive tackle Thayer Munford, officially signed his NFL contract with the Las Vegas Raiders, as fellow draft picks Olave and Tyreke Smith also did this past week.

Fans were also reminded of the greatness of former Ohio State running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Eddie George.

Elliott’s college teammate, former Buckeyes offensive lineman and 2014 national champion Billy Price, also had a big announcement this week. 

Ohio State football’s social media team had some fun this week after surpassing 1 million followers on Instagram. Defensive end Javontae Jean-Baptiste did as well. Can you solve the riddle?  

Jean-Baptiste wasn't the only Buckeye creating laughs on social media this week, as OSU men's basketball head coach Chris Holtmann shared what countless parents of growing children have come to know to be true as he honored his daughter on her 12th birthday.
