Ohio State’s Amir Riep, Jahsen Wint Charged With Rape, Kicked Off Team
Ryan Day spoke out on the two Ohio State players charged with rape this past week.
Cornerback Amir Riep and linebacker Jahsen Wint have been dismissed, the Buckeyes coach revealed.
This comes on the heels of both originally being suspended from all team activities less than 24 hours prior.
Riep was a senior and Wint was a linebacker/safety combo who served as a redshirt senior.
This past Tuesday evening, both young men were apprehended and charged with first-degree rape and kidnapping.
The pair stands accused of “forced vaginal intercourse” by “purposely compelling said victim to submit by force.”
The alleged incident is said to have occurred on February 4 of this year.

While the investigation into what precisely transpired is still ongoing, it seems as though the players’ relationship with the Ohio State football team is over either way.
“I am not making a statement on the criminal charges, but it is clear they did not live up to our standards and my expectations,” Day said.
According to the Franklin County Municipal Court affidavit, the victim started by having “consensual sex” with Riep before she stopped the proceedings and moved away from him. She reportedly told the Buckeyes player she did not want to continue.
Wint then reportedly entered the room and Riep stands accused of forcing the victim to have non-consensual sex with him.
Riep also stands accused of holding her in place during the encounter.
Both Wint and Riep played in 13 outings for Ohio State this past year. The latter amassed 20 tackles and two interceptions while the former earned nine tackles and a sack.
