Buckeyes’ Chase Young Suspended vs. Rutgers
Ohio State star defensive lineman Chase Young will miss one more game for an NCAA rules violation before returning next week against Penn State, the Buckeyes announced Wednesday.
Young sat out last week's game against Maryland and will miss Saturday's game at Rutgers. He admitted last week that he accepted a loan last year from someone he described as a "family friend" but repaid it in full.
Although Young repaid the loan, it is still considered an extra benefit from the NCAA because Young didn't meet the friend until after his recruitment to Ohio State had started.
Ohio State had made a request for immediate reinstatement with the NCAA, including asking for a decision to be expedited. The NCAA completed its review of Young's case Wednesday.
Young reportedly accepted the loan to help pay for his girlfriend to fly to watch Ohio State play in the Rose Bowl last year. The identity of the family friend has not been revealed.
