Ohio State junior Defensive End Noah Spence has his collegiate career on the line following his second failed drug test. He will not return this week as the Buckeyss look to rebound against Kent State.

He was previously suspended for the first several games due to a failed drug test for ecstasy, which took place this past January. His three game ban was just hours away from being lifted.

“We are uncertain how long he will be ineligible, but we will work with Ohio State and the Big Ten until we have a final resolution,” Spence’s family said in a statement.

According to the Big Ten, he is expected to face an indefinite suspension. The handbook says a student athlete, who fails a second drug test “shall be declared permanently ineligible for all further in collegiate competition in all sports.”

He was graded out as a first round pick before his first failed drug test. Now, with the NFL’s strict policies, teams are going to elect to pass on this potentially double-digit sack artist.
