Running back Bri'onte Dunn was one of the stars of Urban Meyer's first recruiting class at
According to the police, Dunn was pulled over after nearly hitting a patrol car on Saturday. Inside the car police found less than 200 grams of marijuana and a marijuana pipe. Along with the drug citations, Dunn was also hit with citations for not wearing a seat belt and a tail-light violation.
Ohio State has not made an official statement about the case as it continues to gather all the facts. Still, given the punishment handed out to Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort -- both players were suspended indefinitely and removed from their scholarships for obstructing official business -- along with Storm Klein being dismissed from the team for a domestic violence arrest, it would not be surprising to see Dunn be hit with a suspension.
Which would further complicate things for an Ohio State team that's starting to get a bit thin at running back.
Running back Jordan Hall will already miss most of September after suffering a foot injury during the offseason, and a Dunn suspension would leave Ohio State with only Carlos Hyde and Rod Smith as backs with playing experience.
