Devoe Torrence is Formally Charged with Rape

Devoe Torrence is Formally Charged with Rape

    Speculation had been around for many months that Ohio State recruit and one of the best running backs in the country Devoe Torrence had been involved in sexual misconduct with former Massillon classmates.

    The had Torrence listed as an Ohio State verbal for months along with all of the other recruiting websites and services. But when he did not visit for an official visit to campus like all committed scholarship athletes eventually do, it was obvious that Torrence would not be a part of the Buckeye’s 2008 class. His scholarship had been pulled for off-the-field issues.

    Yesterday Stark County prosecutors released the indictment against a 22 year old and 12 teenagers for having consensual sex with underage girls they met through around the Cleveland area. Only three teenagers are charge with rape, including Torrence.

    It is a very sad day for the Torrence family as Devoe had such promise on the football field and could have been the Buckeye’s feature back two to three years down the road. His brother Devon is also a gifted athlete and remains on the Ohio State roster although major league baseball was a serious consideration for the standout receiver/cornerback and center fielder at one time.
