Sprinkle suspended, future uncertain

Ohio State defensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle has been suspended from the football team indefinitely after being arrested in South Lorain on Saturday according to multiple media reports.

According to an Ohio State spokesperson Sprinkle's future with the team will be determined at the conclusion of his case but no further details were provided at this time.

Sprinkle was allegedly involved in an altercation at an undisclosed location and police reported to the scene.

The Lorain Chronicle-Telegram reported that Lorain City Jail booking logs had Sprinkle charged with possession of drugs (unspecified), drug paraphernalia and riot/failure to disperse.

There were reports on Saturday that incorrectly stated that Sprinkle's arrest stemmed from heroin charges.

Sprinkle did not play last season for the Buckeyes during a redshirt season and was a 3-star recruit according to Rivals.com coming out of Elyria high school.
