Ohio State freshman lineman Kyle Dodson hospitalized
columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Ohio State freshman offensive lineman Kyle Dodson left the team’s practice in an ambulance Tuesday afternoon.
A school spokesman Tuesday night said that Dodson would be kept overnight at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and that he was expected to be fine.
“He was ill earlier today and had a bout of dehydration during practice,” OSU spokesman Jerry Emig said in an email to the Plain Dealer. “But he is now stable and doing well.”
Dodson was ranked as the No. 16 offensive tackle recruit in the Class of 2012 and his decision to change his commitment from Wisconsin to Ohio State was a major recruiting coup for first-year Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
Dodson had shoulder surgery in January and fell behind his teammates as he returned to full strength. Offensive line coach Ed Warinner said after the start of this season that he was impressed with Dodson so far, but he also expected that he would redshirt.
“Kyle has shown a lot of athletic ability and talent,” Warinner said. “I really like what his upside is.”
