  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Ohio State defensive back Gareon Conley runs a drill at the NFL football scouting combine in Indianapolis. An attorney for the former Ohio State star says the player denies an accusation made in a police report released Tuesday, April 25, 2017, that he sexually assaulted a woman. No charges have been filed and the incident is still being investigated by police.

CLEVELAND >> An attorney for former Ohio State star Gareon Conley says the NFL prospect plans to meet with detectives and give a DNA sample after the NFL draft to counter accusations that he raped a woman earlier this month.

The cornerback projected as a first-round pick in the NFL draft before the police report emerged denies the allegations. No charges have been filed.

Conley’s attorney Kevin Spellacy told Cleveland.com that Conley will talk to police on Monday.

Conley, a two-year starter and a Buckeyes captain last season, was named in a police report that details the alleged assault on April 9 but no information has been forwarded to prosecutors.

The woman’s attorney told Cleveland.com that she is traumatized and wants charges filed.
