Young to return for Penn State game

Young to return for Penn State game

(18) OHIO STATE 76, (10) VILLANOVA 51: Duane Washington Jr. had 14 points and four other players scored in double figures as the Buckeyes (3-0) started hot and rolled past the Wildcats (1-1) in Columbus, Ohio. He'll now be available for highly anticipated Big Ten matchups with Penn State and MI later in November.

In a statement from Ohio State, Director of Athletics Gene Smith said, "I want to thank and express my honest gratitude to university staff members who worked so diligently and expertly to learn and understand the facts, and then to report these facts to the NCAA as part of our request to have Chase reinstated".

As for the Buckeyes, they are led by a pair of veteran big men: junior forward Kyle Young and senior forward Kaleb Wesson. Actually, after taking care of business in every single game this year by a wide margin, Ohio State now travels to Piscataway to take on a rather unassuming Rutgers team that has yet to notch a Big Ten victory in 2019. "He wanted nothing more than an opportunity to play again and we're pleased that he'll get that chance". ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit wrote Wednesday that Young's "honesty and OSU being forthcoming helped immensely", but college football fans will be hardpressed to not speculate about the convenience of how this all played out, considering Young will be back for Penn State and MI after missing OSU's easiest games of the year.

According to Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, the school is expected to submit a written report this week requesting the immediate reinstatement of Young.

Young admitted he accepted a loan from a family friend and paid it back last summer. "We felt that based on the circumstances, the NCAA would use its leadership capacity to take an understanding approach on behalf of all student-athletes who find themselves in a similar position, and it certainly did just that".

Smith added that the type of person Young is, and the fact he's never been in trouble in the past, also aided his cause. A longer suspension would have jeopardized his status for potential appearances in the Big Ten title game and College Football Playoff.

Young has recorded 14 sacks in eight games so far this season and is likely to be a high pick in next year's NFL Draft should he choose to leave school.
