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

Roughly a week removed from the completion of the NFL Draft, the after-effects of professional Buckeyes in new homes are still being felt across the league — chief among them, C.J. Stroud.

As proud parents of former college players made media rounds across the league this week, Stroud's mother Kim made sure to let the world know where her son's head was at well in advance of Mother's Day next weekend.

Stroud was hardly the only Buckeye with sentimental family moments on camera this week, as Jaxon Smith-Njigba received a warm welcome from his brother Canaan to the world of professional sports.

Turns out Luke Wypler's early birthday present was getting to stay in Ohio!

However, it wasn't a rosy week for every Buckeye now in the NFL. Dawand Jones saw his stock take a bit of a fall on his way with Wypler to Cleveland. As narratives emerged to fill the void in his fall from glamorous Senior Bowl workouts, bizarre rumors such as Jones still coveting pro basketball began to emerge. 

In the words of a former Big Ten coaching legend and the tweets of a former NBA Buckeye legend...

But not all journalism invokes such chair-throwing wrath! If it did, Harry Miller wouldn't have launched a Mental Health initiative with CBS this month.

Miller also applied for a Rhodes Scholarship this week — he would become just the second Buckeye since Mike Lanese to receive one, if successful.

Meanwhile, the basketball team welcomed a new transfer from within the Big Ten to Columbus this week, as Evan Mahaffey departs Penn State to become the newest Buckeye at the direction of Chris Holtmann.

As for active spring sports, Men's Golf qualified for regionals this past week after Maxwell Moldovan became the first three-time All-Big Ten golfer at Ohio State since Bo Hoag over a decade ago.

Buckeyes Women's Tennis followed service with a quality postseason performance of their own yesterday that put them through to the second round of the NCAA Tennis Tournament.

Also yesterday, Ohio State announced a pair of preseason candidates for the Ronnie Lott IMPACT Trophy in Tommy Eichenberg and J.T. Tuimoloau.

And also also yesterday, Route Man Marv and an NFL Hall of Famer were spotted sitting courtside at the Celtics/Sixers NBA Playoff game with Meek Mill!

To conclude This Week in Twitter — ICYMI, the 'Vest stole the show in Cleveland last night.
