Jordan Hall, Corey Brown, Travis Howard Suspended For Ohio State Season-Opener

Three Ohio State football players -- Jordan Hall, Corey Brown and Travis Howard -- were suspended for the Buckeyes season-opener after receiving impermissible benefits at a charity event.

Ohio State will be without Jordan Hall, Corey Brown and Travis Howard for its season-opener against Akron on Saturday after the three were suspended for one game. The three were found to have received impermissible benefits during the offseason and were suspended as a result.

Ohio State released a statement on the matter, which involved the three receiving impermissible benefits at a charity event.

As part of its continued work with the NCAA to resolve any remaining football compliance issues, Ohio State today announced that it has self-reported violations involving three student-athletes. That review has led to junior running back Jordan Hall, sophomore defensive back Corey Brown, and junior defensive back Travis Howard disclosing that they had received impermissible benefits of $300 or less each in total at a charity event they attended earlier in the year.

All told, it's Akron. These suspensions shouldn't matter, though Ohio State is considering "institutional sanctions" for the players found to have received impermissible benefits. What those sanctions are remains to be seen.

We'll be back with more on the situation as it becomes available. For all you Ohio State needs, head over to Along the Olentangy
