Farris pulls the trigger for Ohio State

Who said that Ohio State recruiting was slow and methodical? The Buckeyes have struck pay dirt once again for the class of 2011 this time landing Elyria (Ohio) defensive end Chase Farris. The 6-foot-6, 265-pounder was reporting a dozen offers including ones from Notre Dame, Michigan State, West Virginia and Illinois to name a few.

The Buckeyes were one of the first schools to get on board with the Northeastern Ohio prospect and he admitted that when he picked up his Ohio State offer that it was a very exciting moment for him but as more offers started to come in the process grew a little bit mundane.

Farris told in an earlier interview that all of the additional offers would not slow down his process in selecting a school and had maintained that he wanted to get a decision made sooner rather than later.

During Farris' last visit to Ohio State he had a chance to meet with Cameron Heyward and many people have already tried to start drawing some similarities between what Heyward is doing now and what Farris could be doing in the future.
