  Ohio State star Chase Young to miss one more game, return vs. Penn State Ohio State star Chase Young to miss one more game, return vs. Penn StateThe school announced Wednesday that the NCAA had concluded its review into Young, Ohio State’s star defensive end and concluded that he should be withheld for a second game — Saturday’s matchup with Rutgers. However, OSU will have Young available when it closes out its season No. 9 Penn State in Columbus on Nov. 23 and in Ann Arbor against No. 14 Michigan on Nov. 30.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — No. 3 Ohio State announced Friday it will not play star defensive end Chase Young against Maryland this weekend amid concerns he violated NCAA rules by taking a loan last year from someone he describes as a "family friend."

The surprising move was disclosed in the team's status report and depth chart for Saturday's game. Ohio State said only that Young was being held out because of a "possible NCAA issue from last year" the athletic department is "looking into." The school did not elaborate or say how long he might be out.

Chase Young to continue practicing with team as Ohio State awaits resolution on NCAA issue

  Chase Young to continue practicing with team as Ohio State awaits resolution on NCAA issue The All-American defensive end has already missed one game and his availability for Week 12 remains uncertain.Top-ranked Ohio State confirmed last Friday morning that star defensive end Chase Young would not be playing in this Saturday’s game against Maryland.  Per the school, Young will be sidelined for the foreseeable future “due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into.”  On his personal Twitter account, Young acknowledged he had “made a mistake last year by accepting a loan from a family friend” that he “repaid… in full last summer.

Young, however, took to Twitter a short time later.

"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," he wrote on his verified Twitter account Friday morning. "I repaid it in full last summer and I'm working with the University and NCAA to get back on the field as soon as possible."

Tim Nevius, an attorney and former NCAA investigator, confirmed he is working with Young. He tweeted that Young "took a small loan from a close family friend last year to cover basic life expenses. Loan was repaid months ago and we're working to restore his eligibility."

The suspension has been the first hint of off-field trouble or any significant adversity for the Buckeyes, who are ranked No. 1 in the current playoff rankings with legitimate hopes for a national championship in coach Ryan Day's first season in charge. A year ago, Ohio State had just emerged from a scandal that saw coach Urban Meyer suspended for three games for mismanaging domestic-abuse allegations against a former assistant coach.

  Kirk Herbstreit: Chase Young suspended four games; Ohio State feels it’ll be reduced to 2-3 games on appeal An unsuccessful appeal would see the Heisman Trophy contender sidelined for Penn State, Michigan games.Top-ranked Ohio State confirmed Friday morning that star defensive end and rising Heisman Trophy contender Chase Young will not play in this Saturday’s game against Maryland.  Per the school, Young will be sidelined for the foreseeable future “due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into.

Meyer, citing health reasons, retired at the end of the season, and Day was elevated to the top job. His team has rolled, winning every game by at least 24 points behind a prolific offense and a stingy defense.

Young, a 6-foot-5, 265-poiund junior from Hyattsville, Maryland, leads the nation in sacks with 13.5 after a dominant performance two weeks ago against Wisconsin that thrust him into the Heisman Trophy race. He was a preseason Associated Press All-American and is projected to be one of the first players taken in next year's NFL draft.

The Buckeyes are 42-point favorites against Maryland and will be heavily favored next week against Rutgers whether Young plays or not. Their final two games, however, will have Big Ten and national championship implications: at home against No. 5 Penn State and on the road against archrival No. 14 Michigan.

Nevius, a former college athlete at Dayton, also tweeted that "unfair and outdated NCAA rules punish athletes for making ends meet while enriching everyone else."

Young has been the dominant defensive player of the 2019 college football season. He has 15.5 tackles for loss and 13.

The NCAA last month took the first step toward allowing college athletes to cash in on their fame, voting to permit them to "benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness." The NCAA's three divisions have been told to create the necessary new rules immediately and have them in place no later than January 2021.
