COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University says a single donation of $13.5 million will pay for most of the development of the nation's largest sports-medicine facility.

The donation is from the Crane family, owner of several local companies, and university trustees are to vote on Friday to name the building the Jameson Crane Sports Medicine Institute.

Eighty-seven-year-old Jameson Crane is a 1947 OSU graduate who played football there.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/108jkLh ) reports that the new building's 140,000 square feet will allow Ohio State to add physicians, nutritionists, psychologists and others to teams that focus on specific sports or injuries.

It is scheduled to open on campus in 2015.
