Ohio State Buckeyes star defensive end Chase Young will miss Saturday’s game against the Maryland Terrapins. The top defensive player in college football admitted to taking a loan from a family friend.
The school is looking into the incident that allegedly took place in 2018. Young — who is from Hyattsville, Maryland — said he is working with Ohio State and the NCAA to get back into the field.
“Unfortunately, I won’t be playing this week because of an NCAA eligiblity issue,” Young said in a Twitter post. “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. 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.
“I want to thank my family, teammates, coaches, and the whole Ohio State community for all the love and support. God bless and go Bucks!”
