Urban Meyer reaches decision on Adolphus Washington's Fiesta Bowl status
Adolphus Washington’s Ohio State career came to an odd end.
The Buckeye defensive tackle was suspended for the Fiesta Bowl by Urban Meyer following his citation for soliciting a prostitute on Wednesday night.
Through a team spokesman, Meyer said that “Senior Adolphus Washington will be suspended from playing in Ohio State’s upcoming bowl game for violating team policy.”
Washington was charged with a misdemeanor offense, and will be in court on Dec. 17.
Following the release of the arrest reports, Washington issued a public apology though a team spokesman.

The senior is a projected first-to-second round NFL draft pick after receiving All-B1G accolades. He finished his collegiate career with 142 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, and 13.5 sacks.
It remains to be seen how Washington’s citation will impact his draft stock.
Without Washington, the Buckeyes will look to slow down Notre Dame and finish 2015 with back-to-back wins against top-10 teams.
