The Ohio State football team has granted sophomore defensive back Najee Murray his release from the team, an OSU spokesman confirmed Thursday.
OSU coach Urban Meyer said Saturday that Murray had been suspended from the team due to a “training camp issue.” An OSU spokesman confirmed to The Lantern Aug. 7 that Murray had not been practicing with the team.
Murray played six games in 2012, primarily on special teams, before suffering a torn ACL in practice. The Steubenville, Ohio native recorded three tackles during his lone season with the Buckeyes.
Following Murray’s release, the Buckeyes have 21 players listed as either cornerbacks, defensive backs or safeties on their roster.
