Chase Young's indefinite suspension puts Ohio State title chances at risk

Chase Young's indefinite suspension puts Ohio State title chances at risk”

"Ohio State's Chase Young will not play in this Saturday's game between the Buckeyes and the Maryland Terrapins due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into", the statement read.

Ohio State defensive end Chase Young, who is projected to be a top NFL draft pick, is being held out by the football team as the university looks into a possible undisclosed violation of NCAA rules from previous year. Per Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, the length of Young's absence will be determined pending NCAA appeals.

Young leads the FBS with 13½ sacks and is tied for second with 15½ tackles for loss. 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. It's a potentially brutal blow for the Buckeyes, who were No. 1 in the first College Playoff Rankings that came out Tuesday. They were off last week and face Rutgers next week before finishing the season against No. 5 Penn State and No. 14 MI.

Through eight games of Ryan Day's first season, it has been smooth sailing for the first-year coach. "But that's only good if he plays that way, and he is".

If what Ohio State is investigating is actually an NCAA violation, Young's eligibility since the time of the infraction would be in question, meaning he could have been playing the 2019 season as an ineligible player.
