For the first time in Michigan football history, Everybody Hates Chris.

Former U-M defensive lineman Chris Rock has joined the Ohio State football team as a walk on.

Rock lasted only a year on the Wolverine’s roster, seeing limited action before his dismissal from the team was announced.

Kyle Meinke of MLive.com confirmed that Rock had left the Michigan football program on May 10, 2012. At the time, Rock was the 13th player to leave the team since Brady Hoke took over as head coach.

Land-Grant Holy Land confirmed the report that Rock had joined the Buckeyes on Tuesday.

The biggest news from this session was official confirmation that former Michigan 3-star defensive end Chris Rock had joined the football program as a walk on. He practiced with the team today. Rock, a native of Columbus, Ohio from DeSales High, was a 3-star prospect out of high school in the class of 2011. At 6'5" 250, he adds depth to a unit that wasn't exactly hurting for it based on those that are expected to be there come summer football (but is somewhat green none the less).

Rock was the fifth commitment of Michigan’s 2011 recruiting class.
