Today Ohio State men's basketball announced the suspension of sophomore center Kaleb Wesson for a violation of the school's athletics department policy. There was no timeline given for how long Wesson has to sit out, but according to the press release, he will return this season.
"As much as we can, we're trying to keep it a private matter," said head coach Chris Holtmann. "Obviously there are some things, some expectations that we have that he needs to meet, and that he needs to follow through on. He'll do that. I'm confident that he will do that, and we'll kind of take it from there."
Wesson, who leads the Buckeyes with 14.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, will be allowed to practice during his suspension. Indeed, he is going to travel with the team to Purdue tomorrow and sit on the bench during the game against the 14th ranked Boilermakers.
"He's going to be with our team every step of the way, highly involved in everything we continue to do moving forward," Holtmann said. "We'll make sure of that."
