Ohio State has received word from the NCAA on Chase Young's suspension length
After having been uncertain on Chase Young’s suspension length over the last week, Ohio State finally received some clarity from the NCAA. And it’s pretty good news for the Buckeyes.
On Wednesday morning, Ohio State announced that the NCAA has concluded its review for Young’s reinstatement request and has determined that Young will be withheld from one more contest before being able to regain eligibility and participate in games. Ohio State travels to Rutgers on Saturday.
That means that Young will have served a two-game suspension for borrowing money from a family friend to purchase a plane ticket for his girlfriend to attend the Rose Bowl last season. Young admitted to taking the money but also said he repaid the amount in full in the spring.
Young will be back on the field in time for Ohio State’s two biggest games of the season, a home game against No. 9 Penn State and a road trip to Ann Arbor against No. 14 Michigan.
This season, Young has registered 13.5 sacks, forced five fumbles and blocked a field goal. He’s totaled 29 tackles, as well.
Ohio State and Rutgers will kick things off at 3:30 p.m. ET.
