Sprinkle arrived at Ohio State as an early-enrollee recruit in January 2013. He redshirted the 2013 season.
At Elyria High School, Sprinkle was named the Division I co-defensive player of the year and a first-team Associated Press All-Ohio selection as a senior.
Sprinkle is not the only Ohio State defensive lineman who’s earned a suspension. Junior defensive end Noah Spence was suspended in January for the first three games of the 2014 season testing positive for the drug ecstasy.
