UPDATE 10:30 p.m. And... YouTube pulled the video.

UPDATE 3:15 p.m. Here's grainy footage of the altercation Eric Glover-Williams was involved in, a fight with a McKinley teammate.

For about a week now, rumors have swirled around a possible fight between Eric Glover-Williams — the first commit of the 2015 class — and another member of the Canton McKinley football team.

Now, it appears there's some fire to the smoke. From The Canton Repository:

There was a relatively serious altercation involving McKinley quarterback Eric Glover-Williams and another McKinley player during the school day last week at the high school. New McKinley football coach Thom McDaniels declined to comment on the situation, other than to confirm there was an altercation between Glover-Williams and a player who is a senior.

It is too early to say [what this means]. The school will conduct an investigation and review video footage of the altercation — yes some people taped it using their cellphones. Glover-Williams did not play in a McKinley baseball game in the middle of the week.

The result of the school investigation could mean anything from a suspension to an expulsion, the latter of which would all but wipe out Glover-Williams’ senior season at McKinley. That isn’t likely to happen, but time will tell when the investigation is finished.

Obviously, Glover-Williams' status with Ohio State would be in serious jeopardy if the kid is expelled or even suspended for a serious amount of time.

It's important to remember Glover-Williams is innocent until proven guilty, and if he wasn't the aggressor of the fight, then it's hard to see why he should be held criminally responsible for defending himself. 

Regardless, the hits just seem to keep on coming in regards to the 2015 recruiting class.
