Ohio State suspends Bosa, Marshall, 2 others for opener

 

CHICAGO (AP) — Ohio State has suspended All-America defensive end Joey Bosa, receiver Corey Smith and H-backs Jalin Marshall and Dontre Wilson for its opening game at Virginia Tech.

In a statement released about an hour before Big Ten media days began Thursday, the Buckeyes said the players violated department of athletics policy.

The defending national champions open the season Labor Day night in Blacksburg, Virginia, against the only team to beat them last season.

Bosa had 13.5 sacks as a sophomore and enters his junior year as one of the top NFL prospects in college football.

Marshall was second on the team in receptions as a freshman with 38 and was also the team’s best punt returner.

Wilson and Smith combined for 41 catches for 555 yards.
