The plot concerning Chase Young’s eligibility issues at Ohio State continues to thicken. The defensive standout for the Buckeyes will not participate in the team’s Saturday matchup against Maryland after he admitted to accepting a loan from an individual he described as “family friend.
” Initially, it sounded like a story that had a chance to be contained with out too much additional mess.
Which if true could possibly cause more problems for the agent than for Young.
While this drama has little chance of affecting his draft stock, it could drastically affect his path to being officially signed by an agent before the draft, to say nothing of what it means for OSU’s title-contending season. And for the alleged agent, harsh sanctions could be in the offing if unlawful transactions did occur.
There’s still plenty of details to be uncovered here, so this will certainly be something to keep an eye on, as this story could significantly alter both the college football and NFL landscapes in the months to come.
