Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that "[t]here’s no chance [senior RB] Bri’onte Dunn will come back."
Dunn was dismissed from the Buckeyes last week. At the time, Ohio State simply referred to it as being due to a "violation of team rules." A 911 call from Dunn's girlfriend in which she alleges that the 6-foot-1, 214-pound back choked her and hit her has since surfaced. The woman filed a civil protection order against Dunn following the incident. Jul 26 - 1:10 PM

Ohio State dismissed senior RB Bri'onte Dunn.

The Buckeyes did not release any information regarding the specifics of Dunn's dismissal, merely calling his boot the result of a "violation of team rules." Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Dunn had an altercation with his girlfriend over the weekend. That ultimately resulted in a civil protection order being filed against the 6-foot-1, 214-pounder, but it is unknown whether this alleged incident is a direct cause for Dunn's dismissal. He finishes his Ohio State career having rushed for 196 yards over three seasons. His exit opens the door wide for redshirt freshman Mike Weber to potentially take on a starting role in August camp.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer says senior RB Bri'onte Dunn and redshirt freshman Mike Weber are "neck and neck" to replace Ezekiel Elliott.

"Dunn has the seniority edge but missed some time this spring and sat out the spring game with a minor injury," wrote ESPN's Brian Bennett. The top recruit Weber "showed off some serious skills in the spring game," per Bennett, but Dunn of course holds the seniority edge. "Many people expected [Weber] to run away with the job this spring because of his talent, but that hasn't been the case, at least according to the coaches' comments," Bennett wrote.

Ohio State freshman RB Bri'onte Dunn has pleaded innocent to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from a weekend traffic stop.

Dunn was initially cited for a seat belt violation and drug paraphernalia, but the freshman denied the latter was his. In fact, Dunn's mother arrived at the scene of the traffic stop and claimed that the "minute amount of marijuana was present in the vehicle previous to Dunn using it." The disorderly conduct charge is a minor misdemeanor. The police report says he nearly hit a patrol car.

Ohio State freshman RB Bri'onte Dunn was cited by police for drug paraphernalia possession and a seat belt violation during a traffic stop over the weekend.

Both are misdemeanor charges and Dunn was not arrested. The freshman joins Buckeye teammates Storm Klein, Jack Mewhort and Joke Stoneburner as players that have had offseason run-ins with the law. Klein will likely not return to the team, while Mewhort's and Stoneburner's futures are still unclear. Dunn was expected to contribute as a true freshman with the uncertainty that has faced the running back depth chart heading into the 2012 season.
