The Ohio State Buckeyes football team got some unfortunate news on Tuesday when it was announced that redshirt freshman wide receiver Torrance Gibson had been suspended by the school for the fall semester, meaning he would not be eligible to play in 2016. However, head coach Urban Meyer doesn’t seem to agree with the suspension nor does he believe Gibson will leave the school.
Meyer spoke with reporters after he announced that Gibson would be suspended for the upcoming season. He talked about his hopes that the receiver will be back for next season.
“I’ve had zero indication he wants to leave,” Meyer said. “His focus is on being the best Buckeye he can possibly be.”
Gibson was a four-star quarterback in the class of 2015, but switched to receiver after redshirting last year. He would have three years of eligibility beginning in 2017 if he decides to stay in Columbus.
