Ohio State’s Noah Spence, a Pennsylvania defensive end with 2 years of NCAA eligibility remaining, was suspended for three games prior the 2013 Clemson bowl game for ecstasy use. And again in September he failed another drug test that led to an indefinite suspension. Yesterday we learned that Spence will not able to play again for the Buckeyes or any Big Ten team.
Spence had appeal his suspension but was denied reinstatement according to OSU athletic director Gene Smith. The athletic department helped Spence in his appeal and with his drug issues since his 2nd test before the season this year. The statement also promised continue support with his health and his academics.
Spence eluded to going pro in a tweet that he sent out after the ruling was made public by the department.
