YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Former Ohio State tight end Louis Irizarry enrolled at Youngstown State, but apparently has no immediate plans to play football.

Youngstown State sports information director Trevor Parks said Wednesday that Irizarry has enrolled in classes, but was unaware of whether there had been any contact between Irizarry and the school's football coaches.

"Footballwise, he's not doing anything with us," Parks said.

Irizarry was suspended indefinitely by Ohio State after being charged with robbery. The charges against Irizarry and teammate Ira Guilford, a running back, stem from a May 1 episode on the Ohio State campus in which another student claimed he was jumped by two men who stole his wallet.

Irizarry and Guilford pleaded innocent to robbery charges, and a trial date was set for Sept. 2.

Irizarry is a native of Youngstown who graduated from Youngstown Ursuline.
