Ohio State dismisses wide receiver Tyrone Williams
Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Ohio State Buckeyes have permanently dismissed sophomore wide receiver Tyrone Williams for violation of team rules.
Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer refused to give additional information but said he was disappointed with Williams’ dismissal.
“He’s done,” Meyer answered when asked if Williams can work his way back to the team.
Before his dismissal, Williams had not registered a catch in the 2012 season for the Buckeyes (5-0).
Prior to his dismissal Monday, Williams had not registered a catch in the 2012 season. Last year, he played in eight games and made his first collegiate start against Purdue, in which he caught two passes for 28 yards.
The 6-6 Williams was second team all-Ohio as a senior at Shaw High School in East Cleveland and helped the team bag the Lake Erie League championship. Williams also lettered in track and basketball.
As a part of the 2010 recruiting class, Williams redshirted that season as a true freshman.
Prior to the start of this season, wide receivers coach Zach Smith said the coaching staff was impressed with Williams’ progress, adding that he could be headed for a breakout year.
