CHICAGO - The Rivals 100 5-Star Challenge is underway in the Windy City and on Friday afternoon close to 100 players made their way to the media hotel to check in and meet with the media. Fort Worth (Texas) offensive tackle Demetrius Knox is an old veteran of the Rivals camps having participated in both the 5-Star Challenge and Underclassmen Challenge both as a junior last season.

The four-star offensive tackle was a one-time Texas commit but has opened things up and despite maintaining a top-five seems to be down to Ohio State and UCLA as his favorite schools for the time being.

Knox is originally form the Springfield (Ohio) area and has always had a lot of love for the Ohio State program but the lure of the West Coast has also been something that has weighed heavily on Knox and it could be a battle between an old-love and a new destination.

After committing to the Longhorns so early in the process the first time around there is no hurry on Knox's mind this time around so don't expect a quick decision and it wouldn't be shocking if he took this all the way to National Signing Day but a decision at one of the January all-star games is not out of the question either.

We caught up with Knox as he went through the registration process and have this exclusive video update from Knox as he talks about his goals for the weekend as well as his thoughts on the teams that are still pursuing him.
