COLUMBUS, Ohio — Torrance Gibson’s journey to fulfilling the enormous expectations that surrounded his recruitment have been put on hold again.
This time, it came from the university.
The redshirt freshman wide receiver was suspended by Ohio State on Monday for the fall semester, but Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer made it clear that he didn’t have a say in the matter.
“It was not the athletic department or football,” Meyer said. “I disagree with it.”
When asked if there was anything he could do about it, Meyer shook his head no. According to the university release, Gibson was suspended for “violation of the University’s student code of conduct.”
Gibson redshirted as a true freshman in 2015 after converting from quarterback to wide receiver in an attempt to see the field sooner. He was expected to contribute this fall for the Buckeyes, who are looking to replace wide receivers Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller.
