Report: Ex-Buckeye RB Brian Snead's 2018 suspension stems from sexual assault accusation
Former Ohio State running back Brian Snead was suspended for nearly all of the 2018 football season because of a sexual assault accusation, according to a report.
The Lantern reports that a woman accused Snead of committing a sexual assault on September 11, 2018. Shortly after the allegation arose, the running back was suspended by the team.
According to the report, the woman did not want to file charges against Snead and he has not been criminally charged. A Title IX investigation did find, however, that Snead violated the university’s rules about sexual conduct.
Snead was dismissed from the school in November. The running back announced he would be transferring to Iowa Western Community College in January.
Snead is a former four-star running back and was ranked as the fourth-best player at his position in the 2018 recruiting class. Prior to being suspended and subsequently dismissed, Snead had 11 carries for 37 yards and a touchdown.
