OSU Gets Visit From Top 2014 Prospect

One of the best offensive line prospects in the 2014 class is Demetrius Knox of Fort Worth (All Saints Episcopal), Texas. The 6-5, 305-pound Knox is on virtually every school's list for 2014, and he already has offers from Oklahoma State, Alabama, Baylor, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, TCU, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. He made an unofficial visit to OSU on Wednesday with a couple of his teammates.

"I was there with our wide receiver Kendall Adams and our center Caleb Smith," confirmed Knox. "It was pretty much laid back. You kind of expect the coaches to be kind of serious but the whole staff is really down to earth.

"The O-line coach, wow! Coach (Joe) Wickline is one of the smartest offensive line coaches that I have spoke to. I spent about an hour and a half with him and I learned more in that time than I have in a month of practicing. Watching film he was able to point out things and see and show so much stuff," said Knox.

Knox moved to Texas in the seventh grade after living in Dayton, Ohio, so the offers from Ohio State (childhood favorite) and Michigan are understandable. In fact, he is going to visit both schools this summer.

"Probably in July sometime," said Knox of his upper midwestern swing.

Knox is in really good shape with his recruitment and has so many options, but it appears that Oklahoma State made an impression.

He is a smart student and said he is considering English or computer engineering for majors as he would like to teach if football isn't in his future as a career.

Knox said he would keep us up to date on his recruiting.
