Two Ohio St football players kicked off team

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State has released defensive backs Dominic Clarke and DerJuan Gambrell from their scholarships due to violations of team rules.

Clarke was arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier this month, and Gambrell is facing an assault charge from an incident last week.

Clarke was charged with disorderly conduct, fined and suspended one game in October after police said he discharged a BB gun on campus. A redshirt sophomore, he played in 11 games last season.

Gambrell redshirted last season, his first.
