The Columbus Dispatch - Blogging The Buckeyes - OSU says NCAA will not investigate agent allegations

The Ohio State athletics department just released a statement regarding the Sports Illustrated story earlier this week, in which former agent Josh Luchs said he met with former OSU receiver Santonio Holmes in 2005 and Holmes told Luchs he had been taking money from an agent.

"During an interview on Wednesday, Holmes stated he never received money or benefits from an agent," the statement said. "(OSU) has contacted the Agents, Gambling and Amateurism staff at the NCAA, and the NCAA has stated it does not intend to investigate anything further related to the allegations in the Sports Illustrated article based on the information that has been reported.

"The Ohio State University considers this matter closed."
