Frost Suspended For 2006 Season

Marcel Frost was expected to challenge for the starting tight end position this season, but he will instead sit out the season. He was suspended by Ohio State on Wednesday for a violation of team rules.

Ohio State junior tight end Marcel Frost has been suspended for the 2006 season for a violation of team rules.

Frost (6-5, 255) is a native of South Euclid, Ohio, and attended high school at Lyndhurst Brush. As a sophomore in 2005, he had seven receptions for 70 yards and was the Buckeyes' starting tight end for the final five games of the season. He did not play the first few games of the season in what was likely part of an undisclosed disciplinary action.

Frost was expected to compete with sophomore Rory Nicol – who was injured last year – for the starting tight end position this fall. Nicol is now the clear-cut starter and will likely be backed up by sophomore Brandon Smith.

Senior fullback Stan White Jr. can also play tight end, and the Buckeyes have a pair of true freshmen tight ends in Jake Ballard and Andy Miller.
