Earth-shattering news has arrived out of Columbus for the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes. Star defensive end Chase Young has become one of the best defenders in the country and is cemented in the Heisman Trophy conversation.
However, Ohio State has confirmed the 6-5, 265-pounder will miss Saturday's game against Maryland and is facing a suspension due to possible NCAA rules violations.
It goes without saying, but this is absolutely the last thing head coach Ryan Day and Co. need going on in their program right now. Young is a sheer force in the trenches. In eight games this season for the 8-0 Buckeyes, the junior has posted 29 tackles and 13.5 sacks. In addition, he also has five forced fumbles to his name.
However, with this latest report, there appears to be a good chance he's going to miss extensive action for Ohio State.
It's still unclear what rule violations he may have committed and how long this suspension will be. We will update you on this story as more information becomes available.
