Chase Young Facing Suspension For NCAA Violations

Ohio State stud defensive end Chase Young is facing an "indefinite suspension" this season, per Letterman Row.

Ohio State's original one-sentence statement only said Young would not play against Maryland while the program looked into "an NCAA issue from 2018".

No. 1 Ohio State travels to SHI Stadium a week from Saturday to face the Scarlet Knights, the final tune-up before a brutal two-game stretch - against No. 4 Penn State and at MI - to end the season. He had four sacks and five tackles for loss in a 38-7 victory over Wisconsin on October 26, and is one half-sack away from tying Vernon Gholston's school record of 14 set in 2007.

This year, Ohio State star pass rusher Chase Young may also find himself leaving school early - and it also likely won't have any bearing on his future prospects.

The school announced Friday that Young will not play for the Buckeyes in Saturday's game against Maryland, writing in a statement that the Department of Athletics is reviewing "a possible NCAA issue from 2018". That could have ramifications for Ohio State's official statistics and records.

Young, who is considered by many to be the best prospect at any position in the 2020 National Football League draft, will be sidelined for Saturday's game against Maryland amid an investigation of a potential NCAA rules violation.

Young's talent makes him the rare defensive player that is being discussed as a potential Heisman Trophy contender. "Even if it is just one game", Pollack tweeted.

Young has been the dominant defensive player of the 2019 college football season.

It's not yet clear how long a potential suspension could last. News 5 will update this as more information becomes available.
