    4. Demetrius Knox
    When he signed last year, Demetrius Knox was seen as a possible candidate to start for the Buckeyes at one of the guard spots in 2014. Obviously, that didn't happen, but it was a surprise that he didn't see the field at all this past season. However, given the depth that the Buckeyes had at guard, it would have been a waste of a year of eligibility to play him. Even with the Buckeyes returning both starting guards, there will certainly be a place for Knox in 2015. If he is good enough, don't be surprised if he finds himself some good snaps next season.

    Hard Knox life
    Though I suspect many of you have erased it from your memory, Ohio State turned to Demetrius Knox, a redshirt sophomore offensive guard, when starting guard Michael Jordan was injured against Clemson in the 2016 College Football Playoffs semifinal last New Year’s Eve. Knox, who missed nearly 10 weeks of the season with a broken foot, was the best option among a handful of less-than-ideal options for Urban Meyer and Greg Studrawa.



    Knox played like an offensive lineman who hadn’t seen meaningful reps in three-plus years; a baptism by fire against the eventual national champions. In 2014, Ohio State’s Billy Price received a similar flaming bath when the Buckeyes were toasted by Virginia Tech in the second week of an eventual national championship season for the Buckeyes.

    Price said last week that Knox has begun to really step up and looks the part of a real, honest-to-goodness, Slob.

    Courtesy of The O-Zone.net and Tony Gerdeman:

    One of the first players mentioned by Meyer last week in regards to the right guard position was redshirt junior Demetrius Knox, who got some time in a tough situation against Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl last year. His baptism by fire did not go well as he struggled to keep up with the speed of the game.

    “He did, he did,” Price said last week. “To that point I got mine against Virginia Tech (in 2014) so it always happens.”

    There’s only ever been one or two offensive linemen in Ohio State history who have never had a couple of bad moments, so to judge Knox for those moments against a very talented Clemson defensive line would not be an accurate gauge of what he is capable of, especially now after another offseason of work.

    “Demetrius Knox, the transformation you see, because he and I have been very close over the past three or four years that he’s been here, to see his transformation has been absolutely incredible,” Price said.

    Knox was a major recruiting win for Ohio State in the summer of 2013. The former Texas commitment has not yet lived up his lofty ranking, but he’s going to get the chance to do that this fall for the Buckeyes.

    Demetrius Knox — Redshirt Junior

    So far, Knox's Ohio State career has been highlighted (lowlighted?) by injuries. And this:

    That is the Ohio State offense's first play against Clemson with Knox in place of the injured Jordan, who got rolled up on and had to miss a few series in the Fiesta Bowl. Studrawa thrust Knox into the fray as a stopgap when Jordan went down, even though he hadn't played a meaningful down in more than two months after breaking his foot in practice.

    After taking a redshirt during the 2014 national championship season, Knox broke his other foot the following February and sat out spring practice. Thus, this year's set of spring drills is only the second one he has been healthy enough to participate.

    A four-star prospect from All Saints Episcopal in Fort Worth, Texas, it is pretty safe to say Knox is the leader in the clubhouse right now at the spot even though Meyer wouldn't necessarily identify him as such. He lost the left guard spot to Jordan last season before the Buckeyes listed him as Price's backup on the other side, however.
