Stoneburner, Mewhort Lose Scholarships for Summer

Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort will have to pay their own way for summer school.

After the pair entered guilty pleas Friday to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, Ohio State released the following statement minutes ago from head coach Urban Meyer:

"We are disappointed with the decisions made recently by two of our football players. Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort will each be removed from athletic scholarship beginning with the summer term, and they will continue to be suspended from team activities until stipulations are successfully met. They will have an opportunity to return to the team in good standing following the summer session."

While I'll be shocked if the two don't return to the team prior to the start of fall camp, the suspension from team activities will be a setback for Stoneburner particularly as he won't be able to workout with Braxton Miller.

On the tuition front, this will likely go down as the most expensive outdoor leak in modern history.
