Darius Slade is Third Freshman to Lose Black Stripe

After Raekwon McMillan and Curtis Samuel shed their black stripes yesterday, Urban Meyer honored Darius Slade with the same honor today.

Slade, a New Jersey product, was originally committed to Nebraska before switching to Michigan State. On signing day, however, Slade shocked the public when he announced he wouldn't be signing with the Spartans.

Citing a deep bond with new defensive line coach Larry Johnson Sr., Slade pulled the trigger on signing with Ohio State without even visiting the campus.
