Ohio State Overview: Chase Farris is set to become a starter along Ohio State’s offensive line in 2015 … a fifth-year senior, this talented, athletic and team-first lineman has successfully switched from playing defense to offense to defense to offense, and his hard work – battling stars like Joey Bosa day-in and day-out – has paid off with coach Urban Meyer announcing in April that Farris would be the team’s starting right tackle … it is an earned promotion for Farris, who has impressive physical size and athleticism and who shouldn’t be looked upon as a rookie as he has played in 29 games for the Buckeyes, including all 15 last year … a proud holder of a bachelor’s degree in sport industry, which he received in May, Farris spent one week in Costa Rica during the school’s May academic semester, distributing shoes to those in need as part of the “Soles 4 Souls” initiative.

2013 Season (Sophomore): Farris was battling Taylor Decker for playing time at right tackle during fall camp but was ultimately moved to the defensive line late in camp when an injury to Tommy Schutt cut into the depth on defense … Farris played in seven games and totaled 120 plays on defense and special teams … he was credited with three tackles, including 1.5 tackles-for-losses totaling 11 yards … he suffered an injured knee late in the season and had surgery prior to the Orange Bowl.
2012 Season (Freshman): Farris made the switch from the defensive line to the offensive line in the fall of 2012 and he played in seven games on special teams for the undefeated Buckeyes … he played 18 snaps from scrimmage vs. Illinois, part of his 26 plays that game … Farris red-shirted the 2011 season as a true freshman.
