Family reports Ohio State football player missing
Kosta Karageorge, a senior defensive tackle from Columbus, was last seen at his apartment around 2 a.m. Wednesday, his sister, Sophia Karageorge told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1zZXTgq). She said her 22-year-old brother apparently was upset, and roommates said he went for a walk, dressed in black from his hat to his boots.
Police said a missing-persons report was filed on the bearded, 6-foot-5, 285-pound former wrestler.
Team spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed that Karageorge missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer described Karageorge as a hard worker and an important player in practice.
''Our thoughts continue to be with the family of Kosta Karageorge, and we pray that he is safe and that he is found soon,'' Meyer said in a Friday statement.
Karageorge, a former Buckeyes wrestler, joined the football team as a walk-on this season. He has played in one game and is among two dozen seniors slated to be recognized at their final home game Saturday against rival Michigan.
Karageorge's sister said he left without his wallet or his motorcycle. He has a history of concussions, including one a month ago, and might have become disoriented, she said.
''We're very concerned that he's not himself and that he maybe doesn't know what's going on,'' she told the newspaper. She said after each concussion, he has followed trainers' instructions and received proper care, but ''his repercussions from (concussions) have been long-term or delayed.''
The team's physician, Dr. Jim Borchers, said Friday that he could not comment on the medical care of student athletes.
But, Boarches said, ''We are confident in our medical procedures and policies to return athletes to participation following injury or illness.''
The Dispatch reports that about 100 people gathered Friday afternoon in Columbus to post fliers with the player's photo and description.

FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES (8-3) at FLORIDA GATORS (9-2)
Tip-off: Thursday, 7:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Florida -8.5, Total: 137
It will be a classic battle of offense versus defense when high-scoring No. 11 Florida hosts defensive-minded Florida State on Thursday night.
The Gators are currently leading the nation in offensive efficiency and are third in points per game (86.1). That’s due to the fact that they’re making more threes (11.2 per game) than anyone in the nation. Meanwhile, the Seminoles are again an elite defensive team, third in the nation in defensive efficiency (they were first last year) and have allowed more than 70 points in a game just once so far this season. But while FSU has a size advantage and will surely try to control tempo, the Gators guards should be able to take over this game. FSU is extremely turnover-prone (18.7 per game) and doesn’t guard the three-point line well enough (UConn made 44% 3-pt FG in an overtime with over the Seminoles, and Michigan State hit 42% of its threes in a win over FSU) to contain the Gators. FLORIDA is the pick.
The Gators will likely be without sixth man Mike Rosario (9.4 PPG, 42% 3-pt FG), who is struggling with a back injury, but UF has more than enough perimeter firepower without him in Kenny Boynton (18.7 PPG, 46% 3-pt FG), Erving Walker (14.5 PPG, 5.0 APG) and Bradley Beal (15.0 PPG, 6.3 RPG). The interior will again be a question mark against an FSU team that has good size. C Patric Young (11.0 PPG, 7.5 RPG) will have to hold his own against the likes of 6-foot-10 Bernard James (10.5 PPG, 9.2 RPG, 2.6 BPG) and 6-foot-11 Xavier Gibson (8.0 PPG, 5.5 RPG).
The Seminoles will need their perimeter players to perform on both ends of the court to hang close. Michael Snaer (13.2 PPG) is trying to carry the offense this year, but is shooting only 39.5% from the field. SF Okaro White (8.3 PPG, 5.2 RPG) and guards Deividas Dulkys (7.5 PPG) and Luke Loucks (6.5 PPG) have been equally inconsistent on the offensive end, as the ‘Noles shoot just 31.8% from three as a team. They’re 1-3 SU and ATS away from Tallahassee this year.
