Ohio State's Rashod Berry Could Move To Tight End In Wake Of A.J. Alexander's Injury

Ohio State's tight ends room could be getting reinforcements soon.

Ohio State defensive end Rashod Berry could be playing tight end for Ohio State in the near future. Again.

Berry, who is set to be a third-year sophomore in 2017, played defensive end last year for the Buckeyes but he was with the tight ends during his redshirt year in 2015. On Friday, Ohio State confirmed to BSB that backup tight end A.J. Alexander had suffered a season-ending knee injury playing basketball and head coach Urban Meyer said the void could be partially filled by Berry.

"It's tough. It was a freak injury, he was playing basketball, non football related," Meyer said Friday during Ohio State's annual job fair. "It was a tough knee injury. So Jake Hausmann and Luke Farrell, we're looking at Rashod Berry a little bit. We have good athletes on this team."

Hausmann and Farrell will be redshirt freshmen in 2017. The Buckeyes also have starter Marcus Baugh back for one more season while redshirt freshman Kierre Hawkins is on the roster at tight end as well.
