Indiana Suspends DT Darius Latham Indefinitely

Darius Latham suspended indefinitely.

If Indiana is going to stymie Ohio State's offense on Saturday, it will have to do so without one of its top defenders.

On Wednesday, Kevin Wilson announced the indefinite suspension of junior defensive tackle Darius Latham. It's already Latham's second suspension of the year.

According to a report by The Hoosier Scoop, Latham's suspension will last until there's a resolution in a case pending with Indiana's Office of Ethics. That office usually handles cases involving academic misconduct, personal misconduct, or sexual misconduct/assault.

Latham, a former four-star recruit, has provided a major boost to Indiana’s defensive line during his two-plus seasons in the program. He originally committed to Wisconsin, before flipping to join IU’s heralded 2013 recruiting class, which focused on bringing some of the top in-state talent to Bloomington. Latham was one of three local four-star prospects to sign with IU during that cycle, joining Ben Davis safety Antonio Allen and Pike linebacker David Kenney.

Latham posted 10 tackles and two sacks in three games of action in 2015. 

Indiana hosts No. 1 Ohio State Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
