Feb 11, 2023

Former Ohio State wide receiver Dimitrious Stanley died Thursday at the age of 48.

The leading receiver of the 1996 Buckeyes died following a four-year battle with prostate cancer.

The school confirmed his death on its official website.

Stanley started all 12 games of that 1996 season in which the Buckeyes won the Rose Bowl over Arizona State.

He was a member of both Big Ten champion teams in his freshman year in 1993 and his senior year in 1996.

In his 45 games as a Buckeye, Stanley caught 63 passes for 1,136 yards and 13 touchdowns. He broke out his senior year, leading Ohio State with 829 yards on 43 receptions, eight of them for scores.
