Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Jayson Oweh offered by Michigan

Long thought to be a two-team race between Ohio State and Penn State for 4-star defensive end Jayson Oweh, there could be another team thrown into the mix. Michigan offered Oweh on Thursday, and he told Land of 10 he plans to visit.

“This is a huge offer for me,” Oweh said. “They’re both academically and athletically strong. This is definitely a game changer. My parents are excited about the offer as well. We will definitely be utilizing one of our official visits on Michigan.”

The Buckeyes have been working hard to land the New Jersey native, but the degree of difficulty just got raised.

Ezekiel Elliott suspension appears imminent

Ezekiel Elliott’s preliminary injunction against his suspension was vacated by a federal appeals court Thursday, clearing the way for the former Ohio State running back’s six-game ban to finally be enforced.

“We are currently exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days,” Elliott’s attorney Frank Salzano told the Associated Press.

Dallas does not play this weekend, so there’s time for it to be officially resolved one way or another before the next game.

Former Ohio State DB finds new home

Cornerback Joshua Norwood left Ohio State prior to this season, moving to the junior college ranks for a year to find a new home. He appears to have accomplished that.

Norwood committed to West Virginia on Thursday, paving the way for him to return to the FBS level.
