A student who ran onto the field during an Ohio State football game and was body-slammed by a coach may not lose his scholarship.

An official of the Evans Scholars Foundation says that 21-year-old Anthony Wunder has been suspended from all program activities and was asked to move out of the Evans Scholars House on campus. But the status of his scholarship is still being determined.

The program covers tuition and housing for former golf caddies.

Wunder, a fourth-year engineering student, ran onto the Ohio Stadium turf last Saturday and was slammed to the ground by Ohio State assistant coach Anthony Schlegel. Video of the hit became a sensation on social media.

Wunder's attorney entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf to misdemeanor criminal trespassing.
