Former GlenOak standout Bri'onte Dunn is no longer with the Ohio State football program after a violation of team rules according to the university.

High School football guru Tim Rogers joined the Sam Bourquin Show Tuesday to talk about where the former Golden Eagle running back might land now that he's no longer a part of Urban Meyer's team.

"I'm sure he wants to play someplace, and I'm sure he will find a place to play," Rogers said.  "He proved he could play in the Big 10 and I know some MAC teams will be interested."

Bri'onte was expected to get some early playing time this season with inexperience at the running back position with youngsters Mike Weber and Curtis Samuel in the fold.

Dunn had played sparingly with the Buckeyes during his four years with the program and had already earned his degree.

He is eligible to play immediately.

As the NFL Draft nears, many college stars are preparing themselves to take that next step in their football career, wanting to hear their name called and realize that dream that they worked so hard for.

One such athlete is former Ohio State safety Tyvis Powell, who is looking to make his impact on an NFL team coming up.

Powell joined the Sam Bourquin Show on a "Feel Good Friday" to talk about his prep leading up to the draft, his time at OSU, and the lessons and joys he took from playing the game of football.

Tyvis says he's excited about the process and is working towards becoming the best player he can be.

 "I'm excited and nervous at the same time, but it'll be another step and it'll be exciting impressing new coaches and hanging with new teammates," he said.

 Powell was part of the 2014 National Championship team.

Tyvis and some of his fellow Buckeyes will be signing autographs at the Courtyard Canton-Marriott on Saturday at 1pm and 3:30pm. 

Powell talked about playing at Ohio State and how it was a memorable experience he'll never forget.

"When you make plays and the stadium erupts, there's nothing like it, we have the best fans in the land and I'll miss them," he said.
