Former Ohio State offensive lineman Demetrius Knox signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent Saturday evening.

Following Malcolm Pridgeon, Knox is the second of Ohio State’s 2018 starting guards to sign with an NFL team following the draft.

Former Ohio State guard-turned center Michael Jordan was drafted as the No. 136 pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the draft.

Knox started 12 games at the right guard position for Ohio State before having his senior season cut short with a foot injury suffered during a 62-39 win against Michigan in his final game at Ohio Stadium.

Despite the injury keeping him out of Ohio State’s victories at the Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl, Knox still participated at the Buckeye Pro Day in March.

Knox won a starting position on the Buckeye front line after six games as a backup in 2017, and would go on to start 20 straight games before his injury.

His 2018 campaign earned the Fort Worth, Texas native third-team All-Big Ten honors.
