Report: Ohio State commit Eric-Glover Williams in altercation

Ohio State athletics

OSU's first commit in the 2015 class was reportedly involved in an altercation.

After speculation stemmed from a report by the Canton Repository's Todd Porter that the first Ohio State commit for the Buckeyes' 2015 class could be in danger of having his offer pulled due to off the field issues, a new report from the same outlet sheds some light on what may be additional problems for the young WR/CB.

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.

What does this mean?

It is too early to say. 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.

It remains to be seen if another strike would mean the end of OSU's relationship with the talented Canton product. The 4-star EGW ranks as the 8th best cornerback in the 2015 class, the 83rd best player overall, and the 3rd best player from the state of Ohio.

We'll continue to monitor this situation as it develops.
