Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde Dismissed

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Buckeyes have dismissed senior running back Carlos Hyde, projected by some to be among the top tailbacks in the nation this season, The Columbus Dispatch has reported, citing unnamed sources.

Hyde, a bulldozing rusher who led the Buckeyes with 17 total touchdowns last season, had been named a person of interest in the investigation of an assault against a woman at a downtown Columbus bar, the report said.

Hyde has not been arrested or charged with a crime but was identified in a police report filed Saturday in Columbus.
