Bradley Roby, an All-American cornerback for Ohio State, was arrested over the weekend in Bloomington, Indiana on battery charges. Details are slowly leaking out about the arrest, and the Dispatch reports:
he was asked to leave a bar after a disturbance, refused, and was subdued by bouncers at the bar before being taken into custody.
Roby hasn’t tweeted since Saturday, and one of the last ones notes he was “posted” in Bloomington with some of his “homies.” Roby, poised to be a lockdown cornerback this season in Columbus, picked off two passes last season, but opponents rarely threw in his direction. He could have left early for the NFL Draft, but returned for his junior season. We have him listed as the 27th best player in college football this season. I’ve pegged him as a late-first round pick in 2014.
Talk about a rough weekend for the Buckeyes – running back Carlos Hyde was dismissed from the team today following an alleged assault on a woman. The Buckeyes lost their 2nd leading rusher (Hyde), and now could be looking at losing their star cornerback, too.
Big Ten media day is in 48 hours, and we all know what he’s going to get asked about.
