Former Ohio State Player Admits To Selling Team Memorabilia

Ready for the Ohio State memorabilia sales and car deals investigations to collide with primary source confirmation? Enter former Buckeyes wide receiver Ray Small, a suspension-happy-go-lucky kid who not only cops to selling team swag during his time in Columbus to pay bills, but fingers the now-familiar Jack Maxton Chevrolet as a friendly environment for players looking to get in a new ride:

"We have apartments, car notes," he said. "So you got things like that and you look around and you're like, ‘Well I got (four) of them, I can sell one or two and get some money to pay this rent."

The wheeling and dealing didn't stop with rings. The best deals came from car dealerships, Small said. "It was definitely the deals on the cars. I don't see why it's a big deal," said Small, who identified Jack Maxton Chevrolet as the players' main resource.

Read down to the bottom for one hell of a killer quote. And be sure to note, just for funsies, that this all went down while Ohio State was already on probation. Given that, and what's happened to Buckeye legends Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Spielman at the hands of tOSU's lunatic fringe lately, and the fact that this interview is running in the Ohio State student newspaper, the comments on this one ought to be a lot of fun. Dig in!
