Chase Young is not going to play on Saturday against Maryland, not because of an injury, but because of an eligibility issue that the NCAA is looking into.

On Thursday, the Ohio State star provided more details about the situation, revealing on Twitter that he made a “mistake” by accepting a loan from a family friend last year.

Here are a few tweets that backs Young’s side:

Ohio State confirmed the report on Friday morning.

“Ohio State’s Chase Young will not play in this Saturday’s game between the Buckeyes and the Maryland Terrapins due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into,” a school statement said.

So, until further notice, the Buckeyes will be working without the nation’s best player.
