Demetrius Knox is Number 15 July 21, 2013 Source: Eleven Warriors - Moments ago Urban Meyer received a phone call from Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal High School standout Demetrius Knox, and the highly-coveted offensive lineman informed Ohio State's head coach that he wanted to come home.
And with that phone call, Knox ended his recruitment and committed to Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class.
Of course, if you're familiar with how Knox does things you already know there were definitely some shenanigans involved. Nothing is just cut and dry with "Meechy," as he likes to have his fun. So Knox dialed up Meyer, got the Buckeye leader on the phone and started giving him the news.
"I told (Meyer) 'I know I said I was going to wait a little longer to decide what school I'm going to but I feel like it's best if I go ahead and pull the trigger'," Knox told Eleven Warriors. "I said, 'I am really am thankful that y'all recruited me and everything. I really just wanted to call you up and tell you I appreciate everything coach."
"I think he was worried I was committing somewhere else, because he started talking about how he thought Ohio State was in good shape with me, etc. I was like 'Wait, what do you mean coach? I am committing to the Buckeyes.'"
Knox originally committed to his adopted home-state Texas Longhorns last Nov 26, two days after his original home-state Ohio State Buckeyes beat Michigan 26-21. Knox rescinded his commitment to the Longhorns and their head coach Mack Brown in April, citing differences between the staff and himself, and re-opened his commitment.
Today, Knox becomes the Buckeyes fourth OL pledge the 15th commitment overall for 2014...

Bob Hunter commentary: Message not resonating with some Ohio State players A sign on the wall near the players’ entrance and exit to the Wexner Football Complex is marked by the word “Decisions” in red, followed by black-and-white reminders that Ohio State football players are supposed to take with them wherever they go: Honesty. Treat women with respect. No drugs, stealing, weapons. It’s a relatively short list, but the message is clear. If you’re an Ohio State football player, you have a pretty good gig. You have a free education from one of America’s great institutions, you’re playing major college football for one of the nation’s premier programs and you someday might have a chance to earn many times more money in a few years of pro football than most hard-working Americans earn all of their lives...

Jamarco Jones is Number 14!
Jamarco Jones is Number 14 June 27, 2013 Source: Eleven Warriors - It's been a long strange ride, but Ohio State got a call they've been waiting for today when they landed Jamarco Jones, a 6-foot-5, 290 pound offensive tackle from Chicago as the 14th member of their 2014 recruiting class.
Jones announced his decision date about a month back, but since then there's been a flurry of anticipation around his choice as Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame all took their final swings, but in the end it was the long-term relationship that Buckeye assistant Mike Vrabel had cultivated with Jones and his mother that set the Buckeyes apart. In the last year and some odd months, Jones and his family had made a handful of trips to Ohio State and the familiarity with the Buckeye staff and campus proved to be the right fit for the big time prospect, who ranks as one of the top five offensive tackles in the country and is a national top 50 player across the board. Today, from his Chicago high school, Jones became a Buckeye.
The Jamarco Jones File
School: De La Salle Institute (Chicago, IL)
Composite Rating: ????
Composite Rank: 4 (OT)
"He's going to be a real good one," Jones' Core 6 training coach, Paul Szczesny told Eleven Warriors. "He was split between Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State. If he was going to commit early I thought it would be Ohio State."
What are the Buckeyes getting with the addition of Jamarco Jones?
"Hes a great pass blocker with a wide wingspan that he can use as a tackle to get his hands on defenders," Szczesny added. "He's really a well built offensive lineman with a great physical frame and an ability to knock back defenders in run blocking."
Now Ohio State's third offensive line commit for 2014, Jamarco joins fellow a Jones — Marcelys, a three-star guard from Cleveland Glenville — and Lancaster star Kyle Trout, as the Buckeyes continue to add depth along an offensive front that will lose four starters following the 2013 season.
