Report by buckeyextra.dispatch.com, Ohio State Buckeyes DE Tracy Sprinkle was was arrested Friday and charged following an altercation at a bar in Lorain, Ohio. Sprinkle was arrested and charged with possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia, rioting.
The school has not reported if Sprinkle has been suspended but sources say that this has been the action taken.
Sprinkle, a redshirt freshman, was named Division I co-defensive player of the year and a first-team Associated Press All-Ohio selection as a senior at Elyria High School. He recorded 103 tackles, 30 tackles for loss and 19 sacks for the Pioneers.
Urban Meyer like other coaches must work to get a hold of these young men during the off season and not just on the football field. Although Sprinkle is a backup defensive end, he could have potentially played more snaps for a team hoping for a spot in the first College Football Playoff.
