Toledo Whitmer’s Chris Wormley

Toledo Whitmer defensive lineman Chris Wormley is an overpowering lineman who was an All-State selection this
past season. He played one defensive end spot for Whitmer while Ohio
State signee Kenny Hayes played the other. The two were in Columbus on Sunday for the Buckeyes’ junior day.


Toledo Whitmer defensive lineman Chris Wormley was one of the
first class of 2012 prospects Ohio State offered a scholarship when it did so during the summer.

The 6-foot-5 and 254-pound Wormley, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7
seconds, is an overpowering lineman who was an All-State selection this
past season. He played one defensive end spot for Whitmer while Ohio
State signee Kenny Hayes played the other.

The two were in Columbus on Sunday for the Buckeyes’ junior day.

“I went down with my parents and Kenny and Nigel Hayes,” Wormley
said. “A couple of the coaches
showed me around. I talked to coach (Jim) Heacock, Dick Tressel and Jim
Tressel. Coach (Jim) Tressel talked about making my decision, what is
right for me, academics, that kind of stuff.”

Wormley said he and his parents were impressed with what Tressel had
to say.

After receiving a tour of the Woody Hayes Facility and talking to the
Ohio State coaches, Wormley and his parents went to the Ohio
State-Wisconsin basketball game.

“The best part (of the visit) was definitely the basketball game,”
Wormley said. “After the game we stayed for the ceremony. All the
fans, it was pretty cool.”

Wormley grew up a Michigan fan and his parents have been Michigan
fans too. But one would not necessarily know that from what Wormley
said on Sunday night.

“Ohio State is a good school with a good football program,”
he said. “They are definitely high on my list. Ohio State and
Michigan are definitely one and two. I’m not sure yet who is No. 1.
I’ll probably start to figure that out sometime this summer.”

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: As I have said since June, even
though Wormley has schools all over the country chasing him he will end
up at either Ohio State or Michigan. The OSU staff is pushing all the
right buttons, but this one could
definitely go either way.
