The Ohio State Buckeyes are bracing for Chase Younger to be handed a major penalty for receiving a mortgage in 2018, in response to a report.

Sources instructed ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit that the Buckeyes count on Younger to be suspended for 4 video games for a violation of NCAA guidelines. The varsity is hopeful, nonetheless, that it will likely be in a position to get the size of the suspension lowered on attraction.

The size of the suspension is alleged to be tied to the dimensions of the mortgage Younger acquired. He has since repaid that mortgage.

Younger will already be sitting out Saturday’s recreation in opposition to Maryland. After that, the Buckeyes have three regular-season video games left, together with big matchups with Penn State and Michigan of their closing two video games.

How onerous the NCAA comes down on Younger depends on among the finer particulars of the case. What we all know from one report is that Younger says he acquired a mortgage to fly his girlfriend to the Rose Bowl. There are conflicting reviews concerning who loaned Younger the cash. If it was a household pal, that’s most likely not massively severe. If it was an agent, the NCAA will possible throw the e book at him, and it may finish his faculty profession.

Younger leads the FBS with 13.5 sacks this season. He’ll be a high choose in April’s NFL draft no matter how this ruling performs out for him.
