    Yeah, I mixed his film up with someone else's in my mind. I forgot how good Farris was as a senior.

    Just a reminder that Billy Price was recruited as a D-tackle.

    Repping at second team LT. It's obviously early in camp, but it's great that he's gone from being a forgotten man to positioning himself to potentially be a starter next year. Awesome to see.

    Daryl Baldwin and Chase Farris were as well. And Reid Fragel was a tight end.

    Since Urban Meyer arrived at Ohio State, a number of Buckeyes have had success switching positions in order to earn more playing time.

    This has been especially true along the offensive line, where the likes of Darryl Baldwin, Chase Farris and Billy Price have all switched from defensive to offensive line in an effort to see the field more.

    All three ended up starting at least one season for the Buckeyes, and Josh Alabi is hoping to become the next player on that list.

    Originally recruited as a defensive lineman, Alabi spent two years in Larry Johnson's room before making the switch to offensive line in the offseason before the 2017 season. The move was understandable considering Ohio State's crowded defensive line unit, which had as many as eight players consistently rotate during games last season.

    "Coach J just told me that we have had a lot of people that played defensive line that went over to offensive line and that I looked like I would have an opportunity over there," Alabi said. "When I heard that, I knew Coach Johnson just wanted the best for me, and it just went from there."

    Ohio State Overview: Joshua Alabi is a fourth-year junior who is vying for playing time along the offensive line … in his second full season as an offensive lineman … he is coming off a 2017 season that saw him play in 10 games and earn his first Varsity O letter … most of his action came on special teams, but he did have double-digit snaps on offense in six games, including career bests of 44 plays vs. UNLV and 41 vs. Illinois … Alabi has played in a total of 15 games through his first two seasons after red-shirting the 2015 season as a true freshman … he played in five games in 2016 along the defensive line … he is majoring in family resource management.


    Thayer Munford, who left in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against Minnesota, has not practiced this week. Studrawa said he hopes to have Munford back for practice before the weekend, but wasn’t sure if he will be able to overcome the hip issue that has bothered him.

    If Munford is unable to play, Joshua Alabi will earn his first career start at left tackle. He entered the game for Munford when the starter left with his injury and impressed his position coach.

    Josh did a good job stepping up and filling in for Munford. I hope Thayer can play this week but wouldn't be surprised to see them both play.

    I can't help but wonder why he isn't spelling at RT.

    2 words: Meyer and loyalty. He isn't benching a 3 year starter and captain down the stretch and certainly not for "The Game"

    A bit of a talent difference there? Name a RT u feel could do a better job, with the experience in a big game like this, on the current roster?
