Two Buckeyes lose scholarships for summer

This just in from several sources, including Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer: Ohio State football players Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort have lost their scholarships for the summer, will pay their own way for summer school and will have a chance to return to the football team, and to their scholarships, after the summer session.

Mewhort and Stoneburner were charged with obstructing official business on June 2, and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer indefinitely suspended the two players two days later.

“We are disappointed with the decisions made recently by two of our football players,” Meyer said in a statement. “Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort will each be removed from athletic scholarship beginning with the summer term, and they will continue to be suspended from team activities until stipulations are successfully met. They will have an opportunity to return to the team in good standing following the summer session.”
