Urban Meyer: 'I Have Zero Indication' Torrance Gibson Wants to Leave Ohio State

Urban Meyer does not believe Torrance Gibson wants to leave Ohio State.

Urban Meyer does not anticipate Torrance Gibson playing college football anywhere other than Ohio State.

"I believe that is the plan. This all just kind of happened within the last week so we're still dealing with it," Meyer said Tuesday on the Big Ten teleconference. "I have zero indication that he wants to leave."

Ohio State announced on Monday that Gibson is suspended for fall semester after he violated the university's student code of conduct. Meyer said in a press conference shortly after that he did not support the decision, which was not made by either him, the football program or athletic department.

"It wasn't an athletic or football team (decision). I disagree with it," Meyer said.

Tuesday, Meyer added he plans to "move on" from the news of Gibson's suspension and focus on preparing the Buckeyes to beat Bowling Green Saturday, calling it "a very sensitive subject." But Ohio State's head coach believes the once top-flight recruit and quarterback turned wide receiver will return to the program this winter.

"His focus is to be the best Buckeye he can possibly be," Meyer said.
