As first reported by The Columbus Dispatch, former Ohio State walk-on defensive lineman Kharim Stephens was killed in a motorcycle accident on Saturday afternoon. He was 30 years old.
Stephens was reportedly driving northbound on his Suzuki when a southbound Toyota Scion turned left to go into a parking lot and struck his motorcycle. He was taken to OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, where he died from his injuries sustained in the accident.
A native of Queens Village, N.Y., Stephens played for the Buckeyes in 2012 but did not appear in any games. He graduated from Ohio State with a degree in public policy analysis and worked as a patient access coordinator at the university.
