COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - The NCAA has suspended Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey for five more games _ leaving him just one game remaining in his college career _ and three other Buckeyes for one game for taking too much money for a summer job.

Offensive lineman Marcus Hall, defensive lineman Melvin Fellows and last year’s leading rusher, Daniel Herron, will miss one game and must repay benefits after receiving pay for work not performed from booster Bobby DiGeronimo, who has been banned from any further contact with Ohio State athletes.

Posey was overpaid $728. Herron and Fellows both accepted approximately $290 in excess pay while Hall received $230 in overpayment.

Posey and Herron already had been suspended five games for accepting cash and tattoos from a Columbus tattoo-parlor owner.
