Ohio State announced today the NCAA has suspended football players Mike Adams, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey, Solomon Thomas and Terrelle Pryor for the first five games of next season. Also, Jordan Whiting is suspended for the first game of Ohio State’s 2010 season.

The players will be eligible to play in the Sugar Bowl.
For Pryor, the suspension was a result of him selling awards. The Ohio State quarterback must repay $2,500 to charity for selling his 2008 Big Ten ring, his 2009 Fiesta Bowl Sportsmanship award and his 2008 Gold Pants.
Ohio State reported the violations to the NCAA on Dec. 20. The school will appeal the suspensions.
