From Lettermen Row:
Fresh off the finest performance of his career in a record-breaking win over Wisconsin, the Ohio State junior is now suddenly, shockingly unavailable for the nation’s top-ranked team heading into the final month of the regular season, according to multiple Lettermen Row sources. Poised to break the school’s single-season record with his next sack, the captain won’t be available to do it for the Buckeyes on Saturday against Maryland — and now the wait is on to see exactly how much time Young will miss.
Ohio State has not publicly commented at this point on Friday morning, and exact details about the potential NCAA violation remain unclear at this point. Multiple sources have indicated that the program is optimistic that Young will be cleared to return to Buckeyes this season, but a resolution for the matter still hasn’t been reached.
Ohio State released the following statement regarding the situation.

Because of that tweet from Young, vacation of wins could be on the table for Ohio State.
Filed to CBS Sports: By tweeting he accepted a loan from "family friend", Chase Young made it a layered compliance issue. CY will have to prove there was a pre-existing relationship with that person that had nothing to do with athletics. If not, vacation of wins could be on table

Wow, this would certainly be a HUGE blow to the Ohio State Buckeyes, who have absolutely dominated their competition so far this season.
