Awards watch: Left side of OL listed

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The wait is almost over. The season is finally creeping up again, and the annual release of preseason watch lists for the biggest awards in college football confirms it — and helps provide a useful distraction during the final month leading up to the start of training camp. BuckeyeNation will be tracking all the Ohio State players being tracked by the various committees and will be handicapping their odds of bringing a few trophies back to campus along the way.

Prospects working on ESPN 300 OL Knox

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Offensive lineman Demetrius Knox has had an interesting recruitment thus far. The one-time Texas commit is now no longer considering the Longhorns and will likely head out of state. The four-star lineman has a current top five of UCLA, Ohio State, Florida State, Florida and TCU and says he still needs to further evaluate these programs to see which is the best fit for him. “The only thing to separate them is to watch them this season and see who wins,” he said.

Four-star OL Nelson names a No. 1

The order of the top group for four-star Quenton Nelson (Red Bank, N.J./Red Bank Catholic) open to interpretation. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive lineman listed a top five of Notre Dame, Boston College, Ohio State, Rutgers and Penn State. And is that in order? “Sort of,” Nelson said. Notre Dame was the first team Nelson mentioned, and he admits the Fighting Irish are his No. 1 school. “Coach [Harry] Hiestand is a really great coach, and I liked his coaching style a lot,” said Nelson, who visited Notre Dame in April.

OL Demetrius Knox decommits from Texas

Texas’s No. 1 ranked recruiting class suffered a blow on Monday when Demetrius Knox decided to decommit from the Longhorns.
