Instead, the University says it will handle the matter internally after drug charges against Dunn were recently dropped by the Alliance City Police Department.
Dunn, a 19-year-old freshman out of Canton GlenOak High School, reportedly passed a drug test in Columbus after he was found with a small amount of marijuana in his vehicle during a traffic stop on Saturday evening.
The 6-1, 214-pound tailback still faces a minor misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, as well as seat belt and tail light violations stemming from the traffic stop in his home town of Alliance.
It is likely Dunn will face some type of internal punishment from Meyer and strength coordinator Mickey Marotti, but there will be no official statement on exactly what the ramifications will be.
The Buckeyes open their first fall camp under Meyer on Friday. Returning players will report to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center for a 6 a.m. practice, while a freshman-only practice is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. later that day.
Dunn is one of two incoming running backs, although he did take part in spring practice. He will be joined by Columbus DeSales’ product Warren Ball this fall.
