Fresh off the finest performance of his career in a record-breaking win over Wisconsin, the Ohio State junior is now suddenly, shockingly unavailable for the nation’s top-ranked team heading into the final month of the regular season, according to multiple Lettermen Row sources. Poised to break the school’s single-season record with his next sack, the captain won’t be available to do it for the Buckeyes on Saturday against Maryland — and now the wait is on to see exactly how much time Young will miss.
Ohio State has not publicly commented at this point on Friday morning, and exact details about the potential NCAA violation remain unclear at this point. Multiple sources have indicated that the program is optimistic that Young will be cleared to return to Buckeyes this season, but a resolution for the matter still hasn’t been reached.
You have got to be kidding me!!! The report is that this comes from what may have been an NCAA violation in 2018. Chase Young is about to be the #1 pick in the draft and make millions in a couple months, and he's about to get busted for what? Tattoos? Signing autographs? Unbelievable.
I mean, this dude was about to win the Heisman. No joke. Every year there is talk that maybe a defensive player deserves to be in the discussion, but this year it was actually going to happen. Tua got hurt. Oklahoma and Jalen Hurts lost an embarrassing. And Chase Young has proven he is hands down the best player in the entire country on the best team in the entire country. What he did against Wisconsin was one for the ages:
And through 8 games his stats are UNREAL:
And he hasn't even gotten to play the bottom of the Big Ten like Maryland, Rutgers, and Michigan yet. This dude might finish with 25 sacks. But now he's suspended? I mean, I don't know what else to say right now. This hurts. Obviously we're still going to be fine for the next couple weeks without him, but this team has our eyes on the Alabamas and Clemsons of the world.
There's only one thing to say right now until we get this all figured out: NEXT MAN UP!!!
**Also must be noted that some random kid slid into my DM's on Tuesday and told me this was about to happen. I didn't go with it because there's nothing worse than running with a bad source. But shout out to that kid, who wants to remain nameless, for beating everyone to it. He said Chase is done for the season…
