Ohio Road Trip: Chris Wormley
On our Ohio road tour, we ended by stopping at a track meet in Toledo to see Whitmer's talented bunch. Defensive end Chris Wormley not only throws discus and shot, but runs a leg of the 4x1 relay. Afterwards, we got to know the 6'5, 250-lb four-star. When did you start playing football? Since 3rd Grade. Actually, the first year I played running back. A couple years ago, we had a weight limit for carrying the ball, so I couldn't play some years of running back, so I was usually tight end or defensive end. So are you getting on Coach Palka about getting you the ball? Not really. His offense is pretty difficult to learn. I'm on there a little bit, but it's not one of my top priorities. Who's your recruiter at Ohio State? Coach Dick Tressel. And what are your impressions of him? He's real comforting. Always happy to talk to and he's a good person. What about Coach Mattison at Michigan? I talked to him a lot. He sat down with my family and talked about the defense and a lot of things. How have schools talked about using you? Anyone talking about moving inside? A couple schools talked about playing five-tech. Not inside like nose tackle, but a five-tech. Is that something you've done before? We have a coupe plays on defense for that. I'm pretty comfortable with that, especially if I get bigger for college. Have you taken any recent visits? Hopefully I'll take a couple during the summer, but not so far. What about new offers? Are there any schools that haven't offered that seem close? Not that I know of. All the schools that contact me pretty much have offered, so I'm not so sure. So from 3rd grade until now, what's your best memory on the football field? My first touchdown. We were playing over by Warner School, and I scored my first touchdown, probably about a 50-yarder. I broke loose. You showed some of that 10.6. You had it then? Yeah, I've always had it! What's your favorite pro team? Pittsburgh Steelers. Always been my favorite since Kindergarten. What about a favorite player? I really like James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley. They always get after it.
