Urban Meyer's approach to discipline will be closely monitored at Ohio State after off-field problems piled up under his watch at Florida.
Clarke, a backup cornerback who started three games last season, has had several legal issues in recent months.

Gambrell, a freshman, was dismissed for an unspecified violation of team rules.
In other Ohio State news, cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson is leaving to become co-defensive coordinator at Arkansas alongside former Buckeyes colleague Paul Haynes. Johnson's departure leaves Meyer one staff vacancy to fill.
