Former Ohio State cornerback Marcus Williamson finds himself in legal trouble once again. According to a report from 10TV, Williamson was arrested for robbing a bank in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday. The incident occurred at First Merchant’s Bank on N. High St. around 10:40 a.m.

Court records reveal that Williamson approached a bank teller, presenting a note demanding money and claiming to be armed with a gun. The teller complied, and Williamson left the bank in a Jeep. However, police apprehended him shortly afterward. The money taken during the robbery was found on Williamson, leading to his arrest on charges of aggravated robbery.

Following his arrest, Williamson was denied bail and is set to appear in court again on Friday. Additionally, Williamson is under investigation for nine other bank robberies in recent weeks. This isn’t Williamson’s first brush with the law; nearly two years ago, he faced charges of kidnapping, robbery, and carjacking in Tennessee.

Williamson’s journey to Ohio State began as a promising four-star prospect from Westerville, Ohio. He was ranked as the 24th cornerback in the 2017 recruiting class. Despite his potential, Williamson struggled to make an impact during his early years at Ohio State, often finding himself on the sidelines.

However, he saw increased playing time during his senior year in 2020, primarily as a slot corner. His performance that season included 27 total tackles and two passes defended. Although his playing time diminished toward the end of the year, Williamson returned for a fifth season in 2021.

During his final season with the Buckeyes, Williamson played in 11 games on defense, gradually receiving more snaps as the season progressed. He ended the year with 24 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, two passes defended, and a forced fumble. Despite his contributions on the field, Williamson’s off-field issues have overshadowed his collegiate career.
