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

Ohio State athletes of the past, present, and future all had highlights across social media this week heading into Memorial Day Weekend. Jeremy Ruckert started the week off right by becoming the final Buckeye selected in this year's NFL Draft to sign his rookie contract.

Those that watched the Draft may recall the elder Ruckert is a lifelong New York Jets fan, so this entire experience has been a special one for the whole family.

That other guy out of Columbus that the Jets drafted seems to already be leaving a good impression, too.

Meanwhile, down in New Orleans, the early tales of Chris Olave's clinical rookie camp work continue to roll in. Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback James Winston could not help but gush about the newest weapon in the Saints' arsenal.

Though the praise from teammates has been overwhelming, Olave is still doing all he can to integrate himself into the existing New Orleans culture — such as attending a Rookie Super Boil this week.

Hopefully, Olave kept Winston away from the crab legs.

Back in the AFC, Mike Vrabel appears to be doing a poor job of supporting Nicholas Petit-Frere by stamping out the disgusting anti-Buckeye sentiment that lingers along the Tennessee Titans' offensive line. Fortunately, Derrick Henry's soon-to-be new favorite offensive tackle went completely unfazed from the hazing of his Wolverine co-worker.

As the NBA Draft looms next month, E.J. Liddell continues to make rounds while seeking to raise his stock from the current expectation of late in the first round.

Though getting picked may not be a dream that every former Buckeye basketball player realizes, Micah Potter demonstrated there remains plenty of room for accomplishment by securing a spot on the NBA G League's All-Rookie team after going undrafted.

However, this week's most notable accomplishment from a former Ohio State basketball player was unquestionably when Evan Turner announced a decade and a half of peer pressure towards Jon Diebler finally motivated the latter to begin seasoning his meats.

Back to Ohio State football, fans and players alike were thankful to reach the "100 Days to Kickoff" mark of the offseason this week.

C.J. Stroud is already eager to get back in the 'Shoe, and based on the replies to his highlight tape he posted this week, it seems Seattle Seahawks fans desperately want him in their stadium soon as well.

Perhaps Stroud can treat all the offensive linemen in his life to wings at Roosters when his future NFL rookie contract finally pays out.

NIL might provide for that outing sooner — both Teradja Mitchell and Zach Harrison are open for business if any brands are in the market for Buckeyes.

If Miyan Williams keeps forcing missed tackles at a higher clip than any other running back in the Midwest, he could have more opportunities headed his way soon as well.

The herculean strength of Williams was on full display this week when he successfully held up TreVeyon Henderson and Gee Scott Jr. during a cold-blooded stare-down before the two could come to blows.

Though the Ohio State running back room boasts no shortage of power or fighting spirit, incoming freshman quarterback Devin Brown has already secured his title of the team's most fashionable member of the backfield.

Brown officially graduated from high school on Thursday night, and as a gift, he received quite a flashy writing utensil he figures to put to good use one day soon.

The Men's Tennis Buckeyes fell short in the team national semifinals last weekend, but the hunt for glory remains alive today as Matej Vocel and Robert Cash seek to capture the NCAA Doubles Championship against a tandem from Texas.

We conclude this week in Twitter with Ohio State Athletic Director, Gene Smith.
