Ohio State Probing Possible Violations?

Is THE Ohio State University probing whether or not several of it's players traded signed memorabilia for tattoos and other favors?  That's what the Columbus Dispatch is reporting according to sources.  The University isn't saying anything, at least at this point.

According to the report, authorities were investigating possible 'unlawful behavior' by the tattoo parlor owner when they uncovered signed memorabilia by some current and former Ohio State players.  Authorities alerted school administrators.

Some websites have reported that quarterback Terrelle Pryor's name is one of players being investigated.  He took to Twitter to make a comment:

"I paid for my tattoos. GoBucks," Pryor tweeted.

The only thing Ohio State is saying right now is that no players have been suspended for the Sugar Bowl.
