Ohio State Overview: Tommy Schutt is a true senior who has played in 31 games over his career and made two starts: as a true freshman vs. Central Florida and in 2013 vs. Illinois … he entered his senior campaign about 10 pounds lighter than his playing weight last year and more focused – and ready – to make an impact along the defensive line as a senior … an opportunity exists along the interior of the line with the departure of All-American Michael Bennett, a sixth-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Schutt took a step toward that opportunity by having his best spring as a Buckeye … a three-year letterman, Schutt has 17 career tackles and three quarterback pressures … he is majoring in communications.

2013 Season (Sophomore): Schutt is coming off a 2013 campaign that didn’t get cranked up until mid-season as a foot injury and subsequent surgery in fall camp kept him out of the team’s first six games … he played in seven of the final eight games of the season, including a start vs. Illinois … he was in on a career-high 39 plays vs. Illinois and 25 the next week vs. Indiana … was credited with three tackles, including a half-sack vs. Northwestern for minus-2 yards.

2012 Season (Freshman): Schutt played in 10 games for the undefeated, Big Ten Conference Leaders Division champions … started in the team’s second game of the season, vs. Central Florida, and played 21 snaps on defense … was in on 85 plays for the season … totaled four tackles plus an important quarterback “hurry” in the overtime win vs. Wisconsin.
