Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde has reportedly been dismissed from the team by head coach Urban Meyer after Hyde was named as a person of interest in an assault of a woman at a bar in Columbus, Ohio, according to The Columbus Dispatch. Hyde has yet to be officially charged.

The alleged victim said in a police report that she didn't know who her assailant but she could identify the person.

Hyde, who is entering his senior season at Ohio State, joins teammate Storm Klein as players who have been dismissed by Meyer for alleged violence against women. Klein was dismissed from the team after being accused of having a physical altercation with an ex-girlfriend but was later cleared and was allowed to re-join the team.

Hyde rushed for 970 yards on 185 attempts and 16 rushing touchdowns last season for the Buckeyes.
