Three Ohio University players are being investigated for gambling on sports, Bobcats coach Joe Carbone told the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch yesterday. Only one player was named: senior pitcher Andrew Shisila, who went 2-3, 2.62 in 20 appearances for Ohio last year. Shisila was charged with accepting pro-sports wagers, and two other unnamed players are suspected of placing bets.
There is no evidence that the players bet on Ohio baseball or any other university program, and the father of former OU baseball player Brent DeCoster (who was charged with bookmaking) told the Dispatch the charges were overblown and involve "friendly" wagers of $10 or $20, including on a fantasy football league. Regardless, betting on sports–pro or college or otherwise–is very strictly forbidden by the NCAA, and the players will not play while the NCAA investigates.
