Report: Ruling on Chase Young's suspension expected this week
Ohio State is anxiously awaiting the decision on Chase Young’s suspension, and it is being reported that the NCAA should have a ruling on the length of that suspension this week.
A number of details still haven’t been confirmed, but we do know that Young, as he admitted on Twitter, borrowed money from a “family friend” in 2018. Some outlets have reported the loan was for money to send his family or girlfriend to the Rose Bowl, but the big point is that Young said he has paid back the loan in full.
Since the story broke, many have wondered how long Young would be out this season. Some speculated about a four-game suspension with an appeal to lower it, but Kyle Rowland with the Toledo Blade is reporting a lesser suspension.
According to Rowland, Young is looking at a maximum of a two-game suspension when the ruling comes down this week. If that two-game mark counts time served from the game against Maryland, Young could potentially be back after the game against Rutgers.
Here’s Rowland’s report:
Multiple sources have told The Blade that a ruling should be made this week regarding Chase Young and that he’s facing a maximum suspension of two games.

It’s also worth noting that Rowland cited two games as likely the “maximum.” If that’s truly the case, it’s possible Young is cleared for the Rutgers game.
Either way, it currently sounds like Ohio State will get its superstar defender back for arguably the two biggest games of the season against Penn State and Michigan. We will just have to wait and see if that turns out to be the case.
