When Will Ohio State Get Chase Young Back? Now We Know
When will Ohio State get Chase Young back? Now we know.
Young, the consensus No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, was suspended indefinitely on Friday morning.
The move is a blow to Ohio State’s National Championship aspirations and casts a cloud over Young’s draft stock.
Shortly after the suspension was announced, it was reported that the suspension stemmed from a loan he received from a family friend.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be playing this week because of an NCAA eligibility issue,” Young said in his statement.
“I made a mistake last year by accepting a loan from a family friend I’ve known since the summer before my freshman year at OSU.
“I repaid it in full last summer and I’m working with the University and NCAA to get back no the field as soon as possible and want to thank my family, teammates, coaches, and the whole Ohio state community for all the love and support.”
The big question now is: when will Ohio State get Young back?
Well, according to Bruce Feldman, the suspension may be as short as one game.
“Speaking to an NCAA compliance expert on the Chase Young situation: ‘If it is a loan he repaid and can prove it–one game suspension might be enough,’” Feldman tweeted out.
Ohio State has a relatively weak schedule over the next two weeks, taking on Maryland and Rutgers.
So long as the Buckeyes get Young back before their Nov. 23 showdown against Penn State, this entire ordeal figures to have a minimal impact on their year.
