Ohio State suspends WR Torrance Gibson for fall semester

Monday August 29th, 2016

Ohio State has suspended redshirt freshman wide receiver Torrance Gibson for the fall semester for violating the university's student code of conduct, the university announced on Monday.

The suspension will cause him to miss the full season. No details about the violation were disclosed.

Head coach Urban Meyer told reporters that he disagreed with the decision to suspend Gibson.

“Was not athletic department or football and I disagree with it,” Meyer said

Gibson was recruited as a quarterback before making the transition to wide receiver. He made six catches for 50 yards and two touchdowns in the Buckeyes' spring game.

He redshirted last season after a minor ankle injury. He missed practice time in recent weeks with a hamstring injury, but was expected to be ready for the season.

The Buckeyes will open the season on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green.
