PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (AP) - The Palm Beach Post is reporting that one of the nation’s top recruits has been suspended for two games for making an obscene gesture after a contest in Ohio this week.

Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) Dwyer tight end Nick O’Leary, the grandson of golf legend Jack Nicklaus, was sanctioned by the Florida High School Athletic Association for actions after a game against Cleveland Glenville High.

The FHSAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Dwyer lost to Glenville 26-22 Monday, although television replays showed the reigning Florida Class 4A champions twice scored what should have been a go-ahead touchdown in the final moments.

O’Leary had nine catches for 152 yards. He’s considered by many the top tight end recruit in the country this season.
