His college career didn’t end the way that he envisioned, but he’s got a chance to prove himself in the league.

The final season of Demetrius Knox’s collegiate career did not end the way that he would have liked, but he will have the opportunity to remedy that as he has been signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seattle Seahawks following the 2019 NFL Draft.

After starting 20 straight games for the Buckeyes, Knox suffered a lower leg injury in garbage time of the Ohio State Buckeyes’ 62-39 victory over Michigan in November.

Despite suffering the injury in the final regular season game of his career, he was honored as a third-team All-Big Ten selection. Having played in 41 games for the Buckeyes, the 6-foot-4, 312-pound lineman will bring size, skill, and tons of experience to the next level.

Knox joins Michael Jordan, Isaiah Prince, and Malcolm Pridgeon as the Ohio State offensive linemen to make the jump from Columbus to the NFL this weekend.

Land-Grant Holy Land will have much more on Knox and all of the newly signed and selected Buckeyes throughout the rest of the week.
