The former Ohio State star has apologized for his actions.
JaQuan Lyle has published an apology letter following his arrest in Indiana last weekend and addressed his future at Ohio State.
The now-former Buckeyes’ star confirms he’s no longer part of the program. After Lyle’s arrest, Ohio State announced that he had quit the team about a month ago.
Lyle, arrested after allegedly punching a police car, says he’s sorry for what happened. He thanked Ohio State and its fans for “an amazing two years.”

Lyle, a four-star recruit in the 2015 class out of IMG Academy in Florida, averaged 12.4 points, 5.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds a game for Ohio State during the 2016-17 season. He likely would’ve been the Buckeyes’ best player heading into the 2017-18 year.
Thad Matta’s program currently has just 10 players on its roster.
