However, Herbstreit says Ohio State is still hopeful that an appeal of Young’s case with the NCAA will result in a reduction of games missed.
Young reportedly used the loan money to help fly his girlfriend to attend the Rose Bowl, but has since repaid the loan.
The Buckeyes are hoping to hear back next week regarding the decision on Young’s appeal.
Young has addressed the suspension via his Twitter account, explaining that he accepted a loan from a family friend.
Pro Football Talk hears that the “family friend” Young is referring to is actually an NFLPA certified agent, which could cause more issues for the agent than Young.
Young is arguably the best player in college football and in the discussion for the Heisman as a defensive player.
There has already been talk of him possibly going No. 1 overall in next year’s draft, even though there are some notable quarterback prospects.
Odds are that this matter will not impact his draft stock come next year, but it’s at least something to watch.
For his college career, Young has recorded 81 tackles, 27.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and six pass defenses over the course of three seasons and 30 games.
