Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith is appearing in court today after a May arrest for criminal trespassing. The school is reportedly aware of the Zach Smith arrest.

Smith was taken in by officers back on May 12. The alleged incident occurred in the city of Delaware, Ohio, a bit north of Columbus.

Eleven Warriors broke the news about his court appearance this afternoon:

Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith is set to appear in court Wednesday afternoon following a May arrest for criminal trespassing, according to a Delaware Municipal Court record.

Per case No. 18CRB01399-A, Smith was arrested May 12 by Sgt. Ron Sallows for criminal trespassing and has since pleaded not guilty. His court date is set for Wednesday at 2 p.m.

Ohio State did not comment at the time of publication.

Further details of the Zach Smith arrest are unknown at this time.

Smith is the only assistant coach that remains at Ohio State from Urban Meyer's first staff. He is the grandson of former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce, who passed away earlier this year.

He is known as one of the better recruiters on the staff. Non-Buckeye fans may also recognize the name from his active social media presence.

We'll have more on Smith's arrest as we learn it.
