Ohio State is expected to submit a written report to the NCAA early this week seeking the reinstatement of star defensive end Chase Young, CBS Sports has learned. The program held Young out of competition Saturday pending a possible NCAA violation.
Young stated on social media that he made a "mistake" by accepting a loan from a "family friend." Young reportedly used that money to fly his girlfriend to Southern California for January's Rose Bowl, according to The Athletic. Young said he repaid the loan last summer.
If the loan was more than $800, Young could be suspended for up to four games, according to NCAA student-athlete reinstatement guidelines, which were revised in June.
Ohio State could appeal any ruling.
Despite reports last week, no determination has been made on how many more games Young could miss. As is typical in these cases, it is up to the school to declare an athlete ineligible when an issue arises.
