Three Ohio State Players Suspended For Mid-Suspension Summer Jobs

Ohio St. Buckeyes players Daniel Herron and DeVier Posey were expected to return from their five-game suspensions to play against the Nebraska Cornhuskers this Saturday. That probably won't be happening, athletic director Gene Smith announced Monday, as the two, along with offensive lineman Marcus Hall, will likely miss further time for being too well-compensated by their summer employers.

Smith insisted Ohio State doesn't have an ongoing compliance problem, but ... well, here's an Ohio State fan on that sentiment:

When players already suspended for taking impermissible benefits continue taking them you lack institutional control. Sorry, beloved school.

Smith noted the booster who overpaid the three players has been "disassociated."

Herron led the Buckeyes in rushing yards last year, while Posey is the team's top returning wide receiver, assuming he actually returns at some point.
