Ohio State running back Jaamal Berry was suspended from the team in November after being involved in a his second fight just a month after another alleged fight. Berry is being sued for allegedly beating up a man just a few weeks after being accused of using his teeth as a weapon in a fight. Berry is now no longer part of the Ohio State football team according to his attorney.
"My understanding is that ... (Berry's) desire would be to transfer somewhere else and so he could potentially get playing time. Whether he goes back to Florida or whether he goes somewhere else to go to school, I don't know," Robert Tobias, the assistant city prosecutor assigned to the case, told The Lantern. "It was told to me by the defense attorney that he was not on the team anymore and that he had a desire to relocate for school somewhere else out of state."
An Ohio State spokesperson however syas that Berry is still under scholarship in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch, "Officially, he is still on scholarship. He is not working out with the team, and he has not been involved with the team since October."
